AP, August 22, 2008

The U.S. Naval Academy is building on efforts to increase student diversity with the help of a new commercial and a graphic novel.

The flashy new commericial will run at least during televised Navy football games. The graphic novel is due out in the fall.

Vice Adm. Jeffrey Fowler, the academy’s superintendent, wants to make the academy’s student body as diverse as the Navy’s enlisted force, in which minorities make up about 47 percent.
