Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both students and college admissions officers. 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?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, races, cultures, beliefs and economic backgrounds. 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, religions, and classes.
- How is ASA College doing at attracting and supporting students from all income levels?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic, and location diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the financial backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how ASA College is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to ASA College?
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 promote meaningful interactions between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and helps bring about positive connections.
