Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with university admissions officers and students 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.

Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of people, traditions, cultures and ideas. When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are seeking 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.
- Is Allegheny attracting learners from all income backgrounds?
Schools with 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 Allegheny supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Allegheny?
Diversity can be promoted by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote substantial interaction between people from different backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from self-segregating and encourages positive connections.
