Why Diversity Matters
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 refer to diversity in college?
Broadly speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief systems and cultures that come with them. 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, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
- How is Capital doing at attracting students from all financial backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Capital is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Capital?
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to nurture students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to encourage meaningful connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
