Baylor University has been chosen as a "Publisher's Pick" by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education as a U.S. university that attracts and empowers Hispanic students, according to publisher José López-Isa.

"It is a great pleasure to bring...for the fifth year, our 'Publisher's Picks,' those colleges and universities that, in our view, attract, inspire and empower Hispanic students, including those who by entering set a new family standard and launch a new set of dreams," López-Isa said in the Nov. 20, 2000 edition of the national academic journal.

Hispanic Outlook also ranked Baylor in May 2000 as one of the Top 100 schools graduating Hispanic students.

Baylor is among 34 Texas universities, including fellow Big 12 schools Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Austin, named as "Publisher's Picks." The Texas rankings also include community colleges, with McLennan Community College in Waco making the list.

Other Big 12 institutions chosen by Hispanic Outlook are the University of Colorado at Boulder, Iowa State University, the University of Kansas, the University of Nebraska, Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma.
