For the purposes of producing diversity scores, College Factual defines diversity as the most plurality.

Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of people, traditions, ideas and cultures. Students who state that diversity in school is important to them are looking for institutions to offer a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
- Is DePaul supporting and attracting learners from all backgrounds?
Schools with excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as income levels. Get a better idea of how DePaul supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to DePaul?
Diversity can be promoted by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote substantial connections between people from different backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from self-segregating and encourages positive connections.
