Hispanic hygiene students claim discrimination

Hispanic hygiene students have accused the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio of discrimination, according to an article in the Express-News.

Don Gonzalez of the League of United Latin American Citizens told the Express-News that the school's promotions board treats Hispanics more harshly than students of other groups.

Douglas Murphy, interim dean of the School of Health Professions, defended the school's fairness and cited an increase in the number of Hispanic students at the school.

Six out of seven students dismissed since 2005 were Hispanic and the other one black, the Express-News reported. The school has had 151 students in that time, according to the article.
