Diversity Makes a Difference
What do we mean when we talk about 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.
How does this translate to the university experience?
Students who say that diversity in university 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, religions, and classes.
The college years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a university administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
