PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island College ranked 20th among the top 25 public institutions of higher education in raising graduation rates of Hispanic students, according to an Education Trust study released last month.

The college also ranked 10th among institutions showing the greatest decreases in the graduation gap between Hispanic and Caucasian students.

During the same time period, the gap between the Hispanic- and Caucasian-student graduation rate dropped from 23.4 percent to 6.9 percent.
