College Factual lists Grantham as #33 in the nation on the Most Diverse College List

Lenexa, Kan., April 16, 2018 — Grantham University, an online university, is ranked first out of 36 Kansas colleges and universities, and 33rd nationwide for student diversity, according to the College Factual 2018 Most Diverse College List.

“Through the convenience and affordability of our broad selection of programs, we make education more accessible for adults around the world,” said Scott Andrews, president and CEO of Grantham University. “Our unique community of learners includes anyone with a sincere desire to learn -- including military and first responders, corporate America, the government sector and others.”

The university’s ability to draw a broad spectrum of adult learners can largely be attributed to its 67-year experience in serving those whose busy lives demand a high level of flexibility in education. Grantham’s online delivery, monthly starts, no set login times and in-depth student support demonstrate this expertise. Most significantly, Grantham has one of the lowest tuition rates nationwide1 – an appealing factor in overcoming life’s challenges.   

Noted for making the Most Diverse College List for the second year, the university moved up eight spots in 2018 to number 33 nationally out of the 2,357 colleges and universities ranked. According to College Factual, Grantham exceeded the national average in all the categories of race, gender, age and geographic diversity.
