Of the 40 schools that made it on the 2014 HispanicBusiness Best Schools list, UNM comes in fourth in business, sixth in engineering and 10th in both law and medicine.
UNM Provost Chaouki Abdallah said, “We pride ourselves on serving all of our students, the Hispanic community, and all of our diverse communities. UNM is ranked on all four of the lists, which is a testament both to the strength of our programs and the vibrancy and diversity of our university. I am always happy to hear news like this; it is a reminder that we can accomplish great things when we connect promising students and faculty with the resources of a flagship research university.”
“Schools must also rank high in other categories, including faculty numbers and programs to attract and retain Hispanic students. The schools on our lists are well-rounded and have made notable efforts to engage the Hispanic community,” it reports on its website.
HispanicBusiness reports, “UNM, which among the four disciplines averaged a 31.6 percent Hispanic enrollment rates, also has one of the highest Hispanic faculty rates in the country and stellar programs to attract and retain Hispanic students.”
