Why Diversity Should Matter to You
Diversity can be somewhat of buzzword among both college admissions officers and students. What does it mean to you?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, races, cultures, religions and economic backgrounds.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
Students who say that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to offer a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
In order to achieve the most benefit from a diverse campus, seek out institutions 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 confident interaction between different groups.
