Why Diversity Matters
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?
Broadly speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them.

Schools with otherwise excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how CCCC supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to CCCC?
Diversity can be promoted by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to teach students.

This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and promotes positive connections.
