HNU recognized as most diverse university

U.S. News and World Report has recognized Holy Names University as the most diverse university in the nation for the 20132014 academic year, the second consecutive year in which HNU has achieved this distinction.

The magazine's "Best Colleges 2014" edition included campus ethnic diversity rankings for national universities, liberal arts colleges, regional universities and regional colleges. The diversity rankings are based on an index that ranges from .0 to 1.0. The closer a school's diversity index is to 1.0, the more likely it is that students will have classmates from different ethnic groups. HNU's diversity index is .80, which is the highest diversity index of any university or college in the magazine's multiple diversity rankings.

African Americans, Asians, Hispanics and other students of color accounted for 80 percent of the HNU undergraduate student body in 2012—2013, when excluding non-USA residents and students of unknown ethnicity.

"Our diversity is a source of great pride for us," William J. Hynes, HNU president, said. "Our students are empowered both by a rigorous liberal arts education and the opportunity to gain cross cultural competencies from each other. Thus, they are well equipped to be new global leaders working for the common good."

HNU is a small, private university in the Oakland Hills with a nearly 150-year tradition of making quality education affordable.
