How is Diversity Important to You?
What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, races, cultures, religions and economic backgrounds.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
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, in addition to inspiring creativity and innovation.
The college years provide a unique opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a college administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering a climate where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in positive and meaningful ways.
