Why Diversity Should Matter to You
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 people, traditions, cultures and ideas.
How does this translate to the university experience?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are 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 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 encourage substantial interactions between people from different backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from self-segregating and encourages positive connections.

But unfortunately, we do not have the data to find out ABSW Berkeley's geographic diversity score.

Some students may prefer to be surrounded by students from the same age range, while others seek perspectives from other generations.
Traditionally, undergraduate students range in age from 18 to 22. For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to determine the age distribution of the undergraduate student body. Sadly, we were not able to do so for American Baptist Seminary of the West, as the information is not available.
