(May 23, 2014) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is one of 49 colleges and universities in the United States to be recognized in the Hispanic Network magazine Best of the Best 2014 list.
Each year, DiversityComm Inc. and its four diversity magazines conduct select evaluations of the nation's employers, supplier diversity programs and executives, industry leaders, law enforcement and government agencies and colleges, universities and M.B.A. schools.
The evaluations also integrate findings by each magazine independently to identify "Best of the Best" in relation to outreach and accessibility to the Hispanic/Latino, African-American, veteran and female populations. These unbiased studies are a valuable resource for the publication's readers, jobseekers, business owners, students, senior management and consumers.
The goal of the annual evaluations is not only to bring the latest information and guidance to readers, but also encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies. The studies are designed to assist corporate and government leaders in evaluating their rankings by comparing and contrasting to their peers the success achieved within their industries and their measurement in diversity.
In addition to this recognition, Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education has ranked UTSA No. 7 in the nation for Hispanic students and HispanicBusiness ranked the UTSA College of Business and College of Engineering No. 8 and No. 5 in the nation for Hispanics, respectively. Additionally, Diverse Issues in Higher Education ranked UTSA No. 7 for bachelor's degrees awarded to Hispanics.
UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
