How is Diversity Important to You?
It’s likely you’ve heard that diversity is important to the total university experience, but what do we mean when we discuss diversity?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, “diversus” which means “various”. We use it today to describe a mixture of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ideas and ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativity and innovation.
The university years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other cultures and backgrounds. Students should look for a university administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering a climate where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
