UNM ranked in Hispanic Magazine Top 25

UNM is ranked 24th on Hispanic Magazine’s top 25 list of Colleges and Universities for Hispanics in the March 2002 issue of the magazine and is the only school in New Mexico to be ranked on the list.

The list mentions two of UNM’s strongest academic programs in Latin American affairs and Southwest Hispanic studies and recognizes UNM’s position in the second tier of America’s Best Colleges.

Criteria for the list includes number of Latinos graduating, number of Hispanic-related degree programs, Hispanic student organizations, recruiting, minority support programs and Hispanic faculty.

A story in our last issue announcing UNM Taos had achieved branch campus status contained the following misleading statement: "UNM Taos offers one four year degree." The branch offers courses that lead to degree completion for the Bachelor of University Studies through UNM Extended University, but a branch or two-year college does not award four-year degrees. We regret the error.
