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. When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are actually looking for 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 Drury University attracting and supporting students from all economic backgrounds?
Schools with otherwise excellent ethnic and location diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how Drury University supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Drury University?
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 connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and promotes positive connections.
