Diversity Makes a Difference
What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, cultures, races, beliefs and financial backgrounds.
So, what are we striving for when we want to realize more diversity in college?
Students who state 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, classes, and religions.
Diversity can be encouraged 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 interactions between people from different backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from self-segregating and encourages positive connections.
