CSUS among top universities for Hispanic students

When California State University, Sacramento holds winter commencement this weekend, Dec. 19 and 20 at Arco Arena, it will be hosting one of the nation’s largest gatherings of Hispanic graduates.

That’s according to Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education, which once again this year named CSUS one of the nation’s top universities for granting bachelor’s and master’s degrees to Hispanic students.

The publication ranked CSUS 32nd nationally for awarding bachelor’s degrees to Hispanic students and 47th nationally for master’s degrees. That’s compared to rankings of 35th and 55th respectively in the previous rankings.

CSUS is among 19 California State University campuses included in the rankings. CSUS was also 30th in the nation for ethnic minority graduates in the most recent rankings from Black Issues in Higher Education.

Like California, the CSU system is highly diverse, with ethnic minorities making up more than half (53 percent) of its identified student body. Hispanics make up nearly a quarter of its student population.
