Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers 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.
