College can be an especially influential time of one's life; it's an opportunity for individual growth and maturation. Students continue to ascertain their calling and learn many of the requisite skills to be a successful adult. But growth isn't exclusively confined to a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the wild anecdote gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different stance on an issue. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously enhances what you gain from your time in school.
Computational Mathematics is a more popular subject for students of color than white students. 39% of America's Computational Mathematics majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(36%), asian students (19%), and latino students (7%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Arizona State University-Tempe located in Tempe, AZ.
Furthermore, Computational Mathematics slightly skews male, with 40% of majors identifying as men. University of California-Los Angeles in Los Angeles, CA has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.
Another critical type of diversity is financial diversity. Computational Mathematics ranks pretty close to average for socioeconomic diversity (49th percentile). 28% of its students come from households earning more than $110,000 a year, 16% are from mid-income families, and 26% grew up in low income homes. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach is the most economically diverse institution in the top 100.
Considering each type of diversity, overall AZ is the most diverse state for Computational Mathematics. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
