Cal State Long Beach ranks No. 4 for Campus Diversity

Published September 21, 2020

The Wall Street Journal/ Times Higher Education ranked Cal State Long Beach No. 4 in the nation for campus diversity, as part of its recent college rankings.

The category ranking, called “environment” by the publication, assessed the percentage of Pell Grant recipients, the racial and ethnic diversity of students and faculty, and the proportion of students who come from outside the United States. 

In 2019, CSULB was ranked No. 3 in the nation for the number of degrees awarded to underrepresented students by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. The publication noted that 71% of Beach graduates identified as African American, Asian American, Hispanic, Native American or two or more races. 

Last month, The Beach was included in the Top 1% of three rankings by the online magazine Money, including Best Public Colleges, Best Colleges Ranked by Value, and Most Transformative Colleges.
