19 CSU Campuses among Hispanic Outlook's Publisher's Picks
Nineteen California State University's campuses are among The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education's fifth annual "Publisher's Picks," a national list of colleges and universities that the publication views as offering solid opportunities for Hispanic students. According to Hispanic Outlook, the institutions selected "understand the importance of attracting, inspiring, and empowering Hispanic students, not only for the student's well-being, but for the well being of the country."
The CSU campuses included are: Bakersfield, Chico, Dominguez Hills, Fresno, Fullerton, Hayward, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Monterey Bay, Northridge, Pomona, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, San Marcos, and Stanislaus.
The CSU is one of the most diverse higher education institutions in the nation with minority enrollment at 53%, more than twice the national average for four-year public universities. In fact, eight of the nation's top 20 universities in number of baccalaureate degrees awarded to minorities are CSU institutions. In number of Hispanic baccalaureate degrees awarded, CSU campuses account for 13 of the top 40 in the nation. The CSU graduating class of 2000 included 10,168 Hispanic graduates.
The CSU is the largest four-year higher education system in the country. It includes 23 campuses and five off-campus centers throughout the state. The CSU enrolls about 370,000 students, employs more than 40,000 faculty and staff, and has approximately two million alumni.
