is a top destination for minority students
SF State is one of the nation's top destinations for minority students,
according to a survey by Diverse Issues in Higher Education published
in the magazine's May 31, 2007 issue.
The University ranks 16th nationwide among all colleges and universities
in awarding undergraduate degrees to minority students, based on graduation
data for the 2005-2006 academic year compiled by the U.S. Department
SF State ranks even higher as a destination for Asian American undergraduates
-- the University holds the No. 10 spot nationwide.
"The San Francisco State University community is exceptionally
proud of the range of opinions, ethnic backgrounds and experiences that
our students, faculty and staff bring to this exciting academic community," SF
State President Robert A. Corrigan said. "The broad diversity of
the campus creates a rich learning environment and prepares students
well for succeeding in a global economy."
According to the report, more Asian Americans earn education baccalaureates
at SF State than at any other mainland university. SF State ranks second
in that category, behind only the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Business, health professions and liberal arts programs at SF State also
rank high for number of Asian American graduates:
in health professions and related clinical sciences degrees;
in business management, marketing and related support services;
in ethnic, cultural and gender studies;
in English degrees.
Students win CSU honors
SF State students from molecular biology, elementary education and design
and industry took home first place awards in the 21st annual California
State University Research Competition held in May. They were among ten
SF State student researchers selected to compete this year in a field
of 168 from the 23-campus CSU system. Student participants make oral
presentations before juries of professional experts from major corporations,
foundations, public agencies, colleges and universities in California.
The statewide winners are among more than 150 SF State students who participated
in the on-campus Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase.
