Keizer University was recently named one of America’s Top Colleges and Universities for its exemplary work providing resources and strategies to help Hispanic students succeed. BestColleges, the online organization that named Keizer University # 12 in its 2021 ranking of the best colleges for Hispanic students, has compiled its list of public and private schools in the United States.
When creating the ranking, BestColleges used existing data to identify schools that excelled academically and then compared this list to the 299 Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) registered in the United States.
Their methodology used a ranking team from BestColleges who compared academic quality, affordability, and skills online. Their rankings for 2021 reflect data available from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and College Navigator, both hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics.
Keizer University, a member of HACU, is designated as the Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). According to the 2021 BestColleges rankings, Keiser’s Florida locations “provide a culturally rich setting with a large Hispanic population.”
With nearly 30% Hispanic or Latino at Keizer University, students have access to a number of clubs and organizations that encourage them to engage in Hispanic history and culture. Florida has the third largest Hispanic resident population in the United States with 5.7 million. Results from the 2020 U.S. Census show that 26.4% of Floridians identify as Hispanic or Latino.
Keizer offers 20 university degrees in Spanish, including nine advanced and terminal degrees, and is one of 21 colleges in Florida designated as HSI by the US Department of Education, and one of 10 private universities in Florida to hold the title.
