January 12, 2004

The annual listing is based on formal and informal inquiries as well as data from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Hispanics comprise 11.5 percent of SFSU's student body. The University is home to the nation's only ethnic studies graduate program and Raza Studies Department. In addition there are numerous Hispanic student organizations, active service learning programs in Bay Area Hispanic communities, and the César Chávez Institute for Public Policy.

SFSU has distinguished itself as a center of academic scholarship, creative innovation and civic involvement. It is a place where a range of ideas, opinions and resources converge to offer students unparalleled opportunities for learning, exploration, creativity and discovery.

The University makes the "Publisher's Picks" list every year.

"San Francisco State is proud to be named a 'Publisher's Pick' once again," SFSU President Robert A. Corrigan said. "The University's strong connections to the Bay Area's Hispanic community -- through our students, faculty, staff, curricula and numerous community service learning programs -- benefit Hispanics and the entire region."

Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education, published 26 times a year, is the sole Hispanic journal on college campuses across the country that reaches a broad cultural audience of educators, administrators, students, community-based organizations and corporations.
