Measures introduced after review finds only 85 of 1,050 directors in FTSE 100 companies are from ethnic minorities Britain’s biggest companies have been given four years to appoint one board director from an ethnic minority background as part of a package of measures outlined in a government-backed review into the lack of diversity at the top of corporate Britain. Sir John Parker, the chairman of the mining company Anglo American, who conducted the review, said it should be a wake-up call for major companies that only 85 of the 1,050 director positions in the FTSE 100 companies were held by people from ethnic minorities.

Are universities strongly associated with ethnic minority groups a thing outside the USA?
This question asks about the history of why Howard University in Washington, DC, USA has remained a school whose student and faculty bodies are predominantly African-American.
Do "historically [minority ethnic group]" universities exist in a meaningful sense outside the USA? For example, are there universities in Spain which are historically known for targeting or serving the ethnic Basque community? Are there "Historically Italian" universities in Argentina? Do the Ainu of Japan tend to predominate at a specific Japanese university?
This question is not about whether specialized minority-serving academic institutions should exist, or what their social, political, or economic ramifications are, if any.
This question involves something other than a request to churn and process statistical data - it is a question about social realities and social perceptions in academia.
