About Diverse Magazine

Winner of the 2002 Folio Award for best education publication in America, Diverse sets
the standard for reporting on diversity, access and opportunity for all in higher education. Because it provides relevant, credible news and information on higher education issues with a unique perspective, Diverse is the most widely read trade magazine for and about underrepresented groups in higher education. In fact, many minority higher education professionals refer to Diverse as the “top diversity news resource” in higher education.

The magazine’s regular features and columns give readers a unique and fresh insight into
the critical issues facing higher education and its impact on the following areas:

  • African -American
  • Native American
  • International
  • Religion
  • Asian American
  • Women
  • Disabilities
  • Hispanic
  • Seniors
  • Veterans
  • Community Colleges


Because the editorial content is credible, relevant and unique to Diverse, our readers trust and rely on Diverse. When great value is attached to a publication’s editorial, that value is also passed on to the advertising messages found within that publication. This makes Diverse the perfect medium to communicate in and reach a unique, target audience.
