In 2010, Hispanics accounted for 16 percent of the U.S. population, yet they only earned eight percent of all degrees awarded in STEM fields. As the oldest institution of higher learning in South Texas, Texas A&M University-Kingsville has a demonstrated record of providing Hispanic students with quality experiential STEM research and education. In 2015, the Chronicle of Higher Education named the university the fastest growing public 4-year institution in the nation. Hispanics comprise nearly 60 percent of the student population. The university's National Natural Toxins Research Center has opened doors for students pursuing STEM degrees and proves a compelling case study in success.
