U.S.News & World Report Recognizes Nyack for Its Diversity

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Thursday August 24, 2006

In the prestigious rankings by U.S.News & World Report, Nyack College was named again as a leader in racial diversity among colleges and universities in the Northern corridor of the United States in the 2007 report. The largest minority group represented at 37% is African American. International students were not calculated in the mix. Racial categories used in the calculations were Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, African-Americans who are non-Hispanics, whites who are non-Hispanic and Hispanics.

In addition to the racial diversity of its nearly 3,000 students institution-wide, Nyack--college, seminary, and graduate schools-- enjoys diversity denominationally with some 46 religious groups represented. The population of international students represents some nearly 60 countries.

Being intentionally diverse: providing educational access and support to motivated students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, is one of Nyacks five core values. Nyack has been recognized by U.S. News for its distinction of diversity for the past several years.
