Most Diverse Colleges: US News List

US News and World Report recently named the most diverse schools in the nation. New Jersey's Rutgers topped the list with Texas' University of Houston coming in second.

To identify colleges where students are most likely to encounter undergraduates from racial or ethnic groups different from their own, U.S. News factors in the total proportion of minority students, leaving out international students, and the overall mix of groups. The data are drawn from each institution's 2010-2011 school year student body.

The categories we use in our calculations are African-Americans who are non-Hispanic, Hispanic, American Indian, Pacific Islander, whites who are non-Hispanic, and multiracial.
