In individual categories, CSUSB was ranked sixth in awarding degrees by major in business administration management and operations degrees to Hispanics.
“Once again, we’re honored to be named among the top colleges and universities serving Hispanic students,” said CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales. “As a Hispanic-Serving Institution, I am especially proud of our team of faculty, staff and administrators who are committed to the academic and future success of our students, many of them first-generation students.”
The magazine lists institutions of higher education that have outstanding records in honors and ovations among Hispanic students. The list is derived from the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System program.
