In individual categories, Cal State San Bernardino was ranked third in awarding degrees in psychology and sixth in awarding degrees in mathematics and statistics to Hispanics.
“We are deeply honored to once again be named among the top colleges and universities serving Hispanic students,” said CSUSB President Tomás D.

Annually, the magazine lists institutions of higher learning that have solid records in recruiting, retaining and graduating Hispanic students. The list is derived from the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System program.
