Diversity Makes a Difference
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.

Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe a mixture of people, traditions, cultures and ideas. 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 UO supporting and attracting learners from all backgrounds?
Schools with otherwise excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how UO supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to UO?
In order to achieve the most benefit from diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by actively recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups, but are also promoting an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
