Why Diversity Should Matter to You
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers alike. What does it mean to you?
Often when we speak of diversity, what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, cultures, races, religions and financial backgrounds.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are looking for are 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 diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by actively recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups, but are also promoting an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
