Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers 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 refer to diversity in college?
Broadly speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of individuals and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them. When most students seek diversity on a college 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 backgrounds and cultures.
- Is Auburn supporting learners from all backgrounds?
Schools with otherwise excellent ethnic and location diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as income levels. Get a better idea of how Auburn supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
