CSUN has the second-most diverse learning environment in the nation, according to the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Ranking 2020 released today.
CSUN’s standing was based on diversity and inclusion, both among faculty and students, as well as the number of international students who study at the university.
More than 62 percent of CSUN’s student body includes individuals who are from traditionally underrepresented communities or are multi-racial. About 40 percent of CSUN’s tenure-track faculty were non-white in Fall 2018, well above the national average of 25 percent.
The WSJ/THE US College Rankings look at more than 800 colleges and universities, with an emphasis on graduate success and student learning. The rankings are a combined effort between The Wall Street Journal, one of the nation’s most respected newspapers, and Times Higher Education, a leading provider of higher education data for the world’s research-led institutions.
The WSJ/THE is the latest recognition of CSUN’s impact on students from a wide range of backgrounds. Money Magazine recently ranked seventh among the “most transformative colleges” in the nation, highlighting CSUN students’ higher than expected graduation rates, earnings and student loan repayment.
