Wayland among Top 200 Colleges for Indigenous Students

PLAINVIEW – Wayland Baptist University has been named one of the top 200 colleges for indigenous students, according to Winds of Change, a publication of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

This is the third consecutive year, AISES has selected Wayland for placement on the list, which will be published in November as part of the 29th Annual Special College issue. The university’s 2022-2023 ranking won’t be released until publication; however, Wayland’s rank has increased every year it has been named to the Top 200 Colleges for Indigenous Students list.

“The Special College Issue is a highly anticipated reference that students, teachers and counselors turn to year-round,” said AISES Senior Development Officer Candace McDonough. “It’s the only resource of its kind for the growing number of Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians who are concentrating on a science, technology, engineering or math discipline in higher education.”

Research data about Wayland’s indigenous students will be presented in a searchable research-based roster. McDonough said the 2022-2023 edition will contain “statistical information and survey and research data tailored to indigenous students who are eager to find the right college based on their budget, anticipated major and other criteria.”

A print edition of the 29th Annual Special College Issue of Winds of Change will be mailed to more than 7,000 AISES members and subscribers, and a digital edition will be emailed to more than 14,000 readers.
