Why Diversity Should Matter to You
What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
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?
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.
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.
