College is a vastly poignant adventure in one's life; it's an opportunity for personal growth and expansion. Students continue to ascertain who they would like to emulate and forge the crucial skills to be a prosperous member of society. But learning isn't confined to a classroom environment - the interactions one has with their peers, the funny story learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different perspective. As such, attending a diverse college vastly improves what one gains from the time in university.

Human Resources is a slightly more racially diverse subject than average*. 62% of the nation's Human Resources majors are white students, followed by latino students (11%), students of other races**(11%), and black students (9%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Houston&nbspin Houston, TX.

Moreover, Human Resources significatly skews female, with 67% of students majoring in Human Resources identifying as women. Alvernia University in Reading, PA has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.

Another significant type of diversity is wealth diversity. Unfortunately, Human Resources is less economically diverse than 73% of subjects in the US. 33% of its majors come from homes earning above $110,000 per year, 17% are from families with $75,000 to $110,000 annual incomes, and 21% grew up in homes that earn less than $30,000 a year. Ball State University has the most fiscally diverse students in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NJ is the most diverse state for Human Resources. The Far West is the most diverse region, and the West Coast Conference is the most diverse conference.
