Diversity Makes a Difference
What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of people, traditions, cultures and ideas.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
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 innovation and creativity.
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 encouraging an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
