BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Brooklyn College ranked first in the U.S. News & World Report list for most ethnically diverse campuses in the north region. This marks BC’s fifth straight year earning the accolade that considers the total proportion of minority students, not including international students, that formed part of the college’s fall 2021 undergraduate student body. The recognition comes as no surprise to students and faculty, but many say that it is important for the administration to further support its ethnic diversity.
“We are very much grateful for the diversity, and we’re grateful for the people we’ve encountered,” said Ariscelys Turay, Women of Color’s president. “We’re not saying that we’re not. We’re saying there’s still other stuff that has to be done.”
