ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan says its undergraduates include more underrepresented minorities and more students from low-income families.

The Ann Arbor school on Wednesday announced details of its fall enrollment, saying underrepresented minorities make up 12.3 percent of the undergraduate student body, up from 11.4 percent last fall. There also are students enrolled from more Michigan high schools.

Underrepresented minorities include blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans and some other groups and make up 13.8 percent of the freshman class, up from 12.8 percent in fall 2015.

The school this month unveiled an $85 million, five-year plan to promote diversity and inclusion at the mostly white campus.

Undergraduate enrollment is 28,983 and graduate and professional school enrollment is 15,735. Overall enrollment on the Ann Arbor campus is up 2.4 percent over fall 2015.
