Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with university admissions officers and students alike. 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". We use it today to describe an amalgamation of people, traditions, cultures and ideas. Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
- Is CUA attracting and supporting students from all income backgrounds?
Even a school with great ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how CUA is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to CUA?
The university years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a university administration that is not only encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange different ideas and perspectives in positive and meaningful ways.
