USF Lauded by HispanicBusiness.com for Diversity Practices

October 01, 2013

HispanicBusiness.com ranked the USF School of Law the tenth best law school for diversity practices in 2013.

The publication ranks schools using criteria such as enrollment, faculty, reputation, retention rate, and the use of progressive programs to recruit, support, and mentor Hispanic students, according to magazine’s website, which released the rankings in September.

Diversity is a core value of the USF School of Law, and this enables students to learn from one another, promotes a variety of perspectives, and enhances empathy and critical engagement.

“One of the things that brought me back home to San Francisco from Washington, D.C., was USF’s commitment to diversity,” said Dean John Trasviña, who joined the law school in June after serving in the Obama administration. “This is an enduring commitment. USF graduated the first Asian American admitted to practice law in California, C.C. Wing. Today we are one of the most diverse law schools in the country, with a student body that is majority women and a first-year class that is 52 percent students of color. The USF School of Law of today looks like the California of tomorrow.”
