Diversity Makes a Difference
It is likely you've heard that diversity is critical to the college experience, but what do we mean when we discuss the topic of diversity?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe a mixing together of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas.
So, what are we striving for when we want to realize more diversity in college?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
The university years provide a unique opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other cultures and backgrounds. Students should look for a college administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange differing perspectives and ideas in positive and meaningful ways.
