Why Diversity Matters
It is likely you've heard that diversity is critical to the total college experience, but what do we mean when we speak about diversity?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe a mixture of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
Students who state that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to provide 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.
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 positive interaction between different groups.
