College often is a fabulously constructive time in one's life; it's a chance for individual progress and evolution. Scholars continue to find out what they wish to become and forge the imperative skills to be a prosperous member of society. But growth is deeper than what one learns in the classroom - the discussions one has with her schoolmates, the personal lesson received from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different frame of mind. As such, attending a diverse college greatly enhances what one gains from the time spent in university.

Elementary Education and Teaching is a less ethnically diverse focus than average*. 78% of the United States' Elementary Education and Teaching majors are white students, followed by latino students (10%), black students (4%), and students of other races**(4%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Drexel University located in Philadelphia, PA.

Secondly, Elementary Education and Teaching is the the 16th most female dominated subject, with female students out numbering male students by more than a 13 to 1 ratio. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA.

Another important type of diversity is income diversity. Sadly, Elementary Education and Teaching is one of the US' least socioeconomically diverse subjects (Bottom 30%). 32% of its majors come from high income families, 16% are from families making between $48,000 and $75,000 a year, and 22% grew up in households with a sub $30,000 income. Newman University is the most economically diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall PA is the most diverse state for Elementary Education and Teaching. The Southwest is the most diverse region, and the Midwest Conference is the most diverse conference.
