Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both college admissions officers and students 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?
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, religions and economic backgrounds. Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, in addition to inspiring creativity and innovation.
- How is Bentley doing at 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 Bentley is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to Bentley?
Diversity can be promoted by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote meaningful interaction between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and helps bring about positive connections.
