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.

When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are actually seeking 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 cultures and backgrounds.
