Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers alike. For the purposes of producing diversity scores, College Factual defines diversity as the most plurality. Schools that score high in diversity metrics are those with the greatest variety in ethnicity, gender, age, and geographic location of origin.

Alamance Community College Overall Diversity Unknown
While we are able to calculate at least one measure of diversity for almost all colleges, Alamance Community College is an exception.
Racial Diversity Unknown
Racially-diverse colleges offer students the opportunity to study and collaborate with undergraduates from ethnic and racial groups that are different from their own.
Unfortunately, Alamance Community College did not provide sufficient diversity data, so we were unable to calculate a ranking.
Male to Female Diversity Unknown
For most colleges, the male to female ratio is actually skewed toward women, with about six females for every four males. In this section we would usually display what the actual ratio is for this school, but sadly that data is not known.
Geographic Diversity Not Known
Some learners prefer a school that mostly represents local students, while some are looking for schools that attract and recruit students from all over the nation and the world. What are you looking for?
For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to report the geographic diversity by looking at where enrolled undergrads lived before getting admitted to college.
Unfortunately, we do not have the data to determine Alamance Community College's geographic diversity score.

Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe a mixture of people, traditions, cultures and ideas. Students who say that diversity in school is important to them are looking for institutions to provide a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
- Is Alamance Community College attracting and supporting students from all income backgrounds?
Schools with otherwise excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how Alamance Community College supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Alamance Community College?
Diversity can be encouraged by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to teach students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to encourage substantial connections between people from different backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from self-segregating and promotes positive connections.
