Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both college admissions officers and students 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?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, races, cultures, beliefs and economic backgrounds. Students who express 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.
- Is BCC supporting and attracting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the financial backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how BCC is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
