How is Diversity Important to You?
It is likely you have heard that diversity is critical to the college experience, but what do we mean when we discuss the topic of diversity?
Largely speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are actually looking for are opportunities to express themselves and find community with others who believe the same way, as well as opportunities to learn from those from different cultures and backgrounds.
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote meaningful interactions between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and helps bring about positive connections.

Male to Female Diversity Unknown
Did you know that the average male to female ratio on college campuses is usually skewed towards women? There are about six females for every four males attending college currently. We've calculated this percentage for most of the colleges within our database, but sadly, we don't have enough data on Albany Medical College's male to female diversity to supply you with this information.
Geographic Diversity Unclear
Some young people prefer a school that mainly represents local students, while some may be searching for schools that attract and recruit students from all over the United States and the globe. What type of school is right for you?
For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to find out the geographic diversity by looking at where matriculated students lived before enrolling in college.
Sadly, we were not able to get the data to calculate AMC Albany's geographic diversity score.
Age Diversity Unknown
Some students may opt to be surrounded by learners who are the same age, while others seek input from other age groups.
The traditional college student ranges in age from 18 to 22. For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to determine the age range of the undergraduate student body. Unfortunately, we were not able to do so for Albany Medical College, as the information is not available.
