It's almost getting to be a broken record how often I read about great rankings of our local institutes of higher education on a national level. This time the University of Houston-Victoria is being recognized for its ethnic diversity and some of their excellent degree programs.

The website College Factual gave UHV high marks for their degree programs in psychology, computer information systems, business and interdisciplinary studies.

According to an official press release, College Factual compares universities from all over the U.S., and ranked UHV in the top 7.8% of universities for ethnic diversity, and also received high marks for the mentioned degree programs.
