Almost all U.S. colleges and universities agree that diversity is a good thing, but whether or not they actually pull it off is another matter entirely. The truth is, at most American colleges, white students still make up the majority. At HBCUs, black students are the majority. But true diversity is when all races are represented in significant numbers.

As you can see from the stats of the U.S. News college rankings and the Princeton Review in our newest infographic, “Diversity is Hard to Find at U.S. Colleges,” true diversity is a very difficult balance to strike. And yet, even while most schools struggle, some schools succeed.
