In another year of our Education feature, we have decided to categorize our list by industry. Throughout, you will find the Best Universities for Latinos in, either Business, Law, Medicine, STEM, or Arts. These universities are considered some of the most exclusive universities in the country. Through our research, we've discovered the efforts, organizations and plans these universities are implementing in order to advance diversity and inclusion within their institution. It is our belief that each university or college should be working towards broadening the opportunities for Latino students. With almost 25% of Hispanic student population in the country, with such a great power to influence politics and economy, it is the duty of these institutions to provide Latino students the resources to achieve their full capacity.
WORD FROM ANTONIO R. FLORES
"Hispanics are enrolling in higher education at unprecedented rates and are a talent source with the potential to transform America's economy," said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores. "Institutions with a diverse community of students and faculty welcoming and supporting Hispanic students and their Families through innovative programs redefine what it means to be one of the 'best' universities for Latinos."
