(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 prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
