Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both college admissions officers and students. 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 an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. Students who state that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to provide a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, religions, and classes.
- How is CCA doing at attracting and supporting students from all income levels?
Schools with excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how CCA supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to CCA?
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to foster meaningful interactions between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
