The 10 Most Diverse Colleges

Posted: Updated:

Which American campuses are the most ethnically diverse? In order to find out, U.S. News and World Report looked at enrollment data from schools -- divided by region and type -- and found the overall percentage of minority students as well as how many ethnic groups were represented on each campus. The schools that scored closer to one on the index are those "where students are most likely to encounter undergraduates from racial or ethnic groups different from their own."

Racial categories include Hispanics, non-Hispanic African-Americans, non-Hispanic Whites, American Indians and Native Alaskans, and Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders.
