The WSJ/THE rankings’ environment metric takes into account the share of student population that is international, as well as student and faculty racial and ethnic diversity, and socioeconomic diversity among students. Schools are selected for this ranking for providing the best values for students and families, preparing students for life after graduation, and for the level of student engagement in their curriculum.

“Our focus has always been on creating an inclusive campus community and we are excited to know that our efforts have garnered this distinction,” said North Miami Campus President Larry A. Rice, Ed.D. '90.

A total of 44 countries are represented at the North Miami Campus. The mixture of cultures is a representative cross-section of the region’s rich ethnic/cultural makeup. The gender breakdown (64 % female, 36% male) also provides true representation of the unique blend that the campus offers.
