Diversity Makes a Difference
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". Today we use it to describe a mixing together of people, traditions, cultures and ideas. 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 varied workforce of tomorrow, in addition to inspiring creativity and innovation.
- How is Dartmouth doing at attracting and supporting students from all income levels?
Even a school with great racial, ethnic, and location diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the financial backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Dartmouth is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to Dartmouth?
Diversity can be encouraged by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to teach students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote substantial interactions between people from different backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from self-segregating and helps bring about positive connections.
