Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers. 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?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of people, traditions, ideas and cultures. 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 backgrounds and cultures.
- Is Berea supporting students from all economic backgrounds?
Schools with excellent ethnic and location diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how Berea supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
