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

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". We use it today to describe an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas. Students who state that diversity in college 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.
- How is Albion doing at attracting and supporting students from all income levels?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the financial backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Albion is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Albion?
In order to achieve the most benefit from a diverse campus, seek out institutions that are not only promoting diversity by actively recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups, but are also encouraging an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
