Why Diversity Should Matter to You
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and college admissions officers alike . What does it mean to you?
Largely speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief systems and cultures that come with them.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are actually looking for is opportunities to express themselves and find community with others who believe the same way, as well as opportunities to learn from those from different backgrounds and cultures .
In order to achieve the most benefit from a diverse campus, seek out institutions that are not only promoting diversity by recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups actively, but are also promoting an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
