Diversity By The Numbers: Calvin's Community

Below are tables and graphs to reflect the demographics of students, faculty, and staff at Calvin College. Included are breakdowns of ethnicity, nationality, gender, and faith backgrounds. This data is very important in painting a picture of the populations that compose our community, yet diversity is more than numbers.
