The feature in an upcoming edition of a national magazine places Palomar College among the best institutions of higher learning for Hispanics in the U.S., based on overall enrollment and the number of Hispanic students receiving degrees and certificates.

SAN MARCOS, CA ― Palomar College has been selected as one of the “Top 50 Colleges for Hispanics” across the country and will be featured in the Feb. 11, 2019 edition of The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education, the magazine announced this week.

The national rankings place Palomar at 24th for overall enrollment of Hispanic students, and 37th for the number graduating with degrees and certificates.

“Palomar College is committed to fostering diversity and equality on our campuses, and we are proud of the thousands of Hispanic students who are currently pursuing their goals here—as well as the tens of thousands who have learned with us in the past,” said Superintendent/President Dr. Joi Lin Blake. “This recognition is an honor not only for Palomar as an institution, but also for our diverse and hard-working student body.”

Also known as Hispanic Outlook on Education, the journal’s website describes it as a “national monthly magazine that provides education news, innovations, networking, resources and the latest trends impacting students from kindergarten through graduate school all while maintaining a unique Hispanic perspective.”
