These are the 10 most diverse colleges in the United States

Choosing a university in the United States can be tough – particularly because there is so much choice.

The country boasts many of the world’s finest universities, and clearly academic reputation and industry links will be primary considerations. But perhaps important too is whether as an international student you will feel at home among a diverse cohort of classmates and teachers.

Created by Niche, a website which assists people to find the best place to live or study, the 2018 Most Diverse Colleges in America index ranks higher education institutions according to the diversity of their student body and staff in terms of race, nationality and gender.

The ranking considers a range of measures from US Department of Education data, including the Index of Student Racial Diversity, Percent of International Students, the Faculty Diversity Index and the Faculty Gender Ratio.

Here are the most diverse schools in the United States. Just like the staff and students of the universities themselves, the variety of schools are diverse – private and public, religious and secular, spread across the entire country.
