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 refer to diversity in college?
Largely speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them. Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativity and innovation.
- How is Tulane doing at supporting and attracting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how Tulane is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Tulane?
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to nurture students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote meaningful interaction between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and promotes positive connections.
