Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both students and college admissions officers alike. 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 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 peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are actually 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 backgrounds and cultures.
- How is Alliant doing at supporting students from all financial backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Alliant is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Alliant?
Diversity can be promoted by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to nurture students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to foster meaningful connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
