Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both students and college admissions officers 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?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe a mixture of peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. 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 diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativity and innovation.
- How is CCSU doing at supporting and attracting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how CCSU is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
