Texas Wesleyan among most diversified colleges

Texas Wesleyan University has been ranked fourth in Time magazine’s list of private and public colleges from across the country that have diversified the most since 1990.

Texas Wesleyan has increased its diversity 41.9 percent over the last 24 years, according to the magazine’s study.

Ranked ahead of Texas Wesleyan is Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga., the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and Green River College in Auburn, Wash.

“There is so much to learn from each other on a campus as diverse as Texas Wesleyan,” said Dennis Hall, dean of students. “Our wide range of student organizations, like the Asian Students Association, the Bilingual Education Student Organization and the Saudi Cultural Club, support our international students and teach our domestic students about heritages and cultures across the globe.”
