Diversity Makes a Difference
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 talk about diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, cultures, races, beliefs and financial backgrounds. Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ideas and ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, in addition to inspiring creativity and innovation.
- Is Carleton attracting learners from all economic backgrounds?
Schools with higher than average racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as economic backgrounds. Get a better idea of how Carleton supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
