Diversity Makes a Difference
It's likely you've heard that diversity is important to the total university experience, but what do we mean when we speak about diversity?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe a mixture of people, traditions, cultures and ideas.
How does this translate to the university experience?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativity and innovation.
Diversity can be promoted by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to foster substantial interaction between people from different backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from self-segregating and promotes positive connections.
