MSU chosen "Publisher's Pick" by Hispanic Outlook magazine

For the fourth straight year, Montclair State University has been labeled an educational leader by a prominent national higher education magazine.

MSU has been selected as a "Publisher's Pick" by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine. In its Nov. 20 issue, publisher Jose Lopez-Isa said that the magazine's 2000 "Publisher's Picks" include "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."

Additionally, MSU was cited as one of the "Top 100 Schools Graduating Hispanics" nationally, the third time the University has been so honored.

"At MSU, we pride ourselves on the diversity of our University community," said Dr. Susan A. Cole, MSU president. "We are passionate in our commitment to provide the very best education to an inclusive, multicultural student population.

"We are extremely pleased to be honored by this important magazine and recognize it as a wonderful validation of the success of our broad-based educational mission."

Lopez-Isa noted that 7,000 high school guidance counselors nationally will receive the "Publisher's Pick" issue. The Paramus-based magazine can be accessed on the web at
