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?

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 cultures and backgrounds.

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 Aurora is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
