College can be a vastly constructive time in one's life; it's an opportunity for individual growth and evolution. Students continue to discover what they want to do with their lives and forge the indispensable skills to become a halcyon adult. But growth goes far beyond a classroom environment - the conversations one has with his schoolmates, the funny story gained from a tenured instructor, the exposure to a different way of thinking. As such, attending a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time in college.

Jazz is a more racially diverse focus than average*. 51% of the United States' Jazz majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(24%), latino students (15%), and black students (8%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Michigan State University&nbspin East Lansing, MI.

Additionally, Jazz is the the 13th most male dominated subject, with 86% of students identify as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is The New School in New York, NY.

Another important type of diversity is financial diversity. Jazz is more fiscally diverse than 64% of majors. 28% of its majors come from homes with $110,000 plus annual incomes, 16% are from families with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 25% grew up in low income households. Elmhurst College is the most economically diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NY is the most diverse state for Jazz. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the is the most diverse conference.
