George Mason University has been recognized by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine as the only Virginia-based school to be among its top 100 institutions “with a solid record of recruiting, enabling, and graduating Hispanic students.”

A total of 564 universities and colleges were selected by the publication.

In an open letter to all of the selected institutions, magazine publisher Jose Lopez-Isa wrote, “Whatever is wonderful about your institution, what is most important is the breadth and depth of your commitment to the success of your students—including those who are Hispanic.”

Of the 28,874 students currently enrolled at Mason, 1,678 are Hispanic.

The other Virginia institutions recognized by the magazine were the College of William and Mary, Northern Virginia Community College, Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, and the University of Virginia.
