College makes list of top schools for Hispanics
Tuesday, Apr 10, 2012
Seminole State College of Florida is among the top grantors of Associate in Arts (A.A.) degrees for Hispanic students in the United States, according to Hispanic Outlook Magazine.
The magazine, which annually compiles its Top 50 for community colleges, ranked Seminole State No. 10 among the Top 15 Four-Year Schools Awarding Associate Degrees to Hispanic students.
“It’s rewarding to see the growth of Hispanic graduates match the growing number of minority students at Seminole State,” says Dr. Mark Morgan, the College’s associate vice president of Institutional Effectiveness. Seminole State has seen a changing demographic among students during the past decade, Morgan says. Nearly 50 percent of its students are minorities, compared with 30 percent a decade ago.
Of Seminole State’s 2,004 A.A. degree graduates during the 2009-10 academic year, 16 percent were Hispanic. Seminole State was one of nine Florida colleges to make the Top 15 list.
