BCC a Leader in Education for Latinos
Bronx Community College is among the top five colleges across the state for enrolling and awarding associate degrees to Latino students, according to a new report issued by Excelencia in Education and the State University of New York at Albany. In the same study, The City University of New York took top honors for having the most Hispanic Serving Institutes (HSIs) in New York State.
“We are beyond proud that Excelencia has identified many of our colleges and programs in its report for promoting Latino retention, college access and degree completion,” said Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez. “With CUNY colleges leading most of Excelencia’s rankings in the state for most degrees and certificates awarded to Latinos and for highest enrollment figures — CUNY is the undisputed leader in New York for serving Latinos in higher education.”
