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 talk about 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. When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are actually seeking are opportunities to express themselves and find community with others who believe the same way, as well as opportunities to learn from those from different backgrounds and cultures.
- Is Digipen attracting and supporting students from all income backgrounds?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic, and location diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Digipen is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
