Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas. Students who state that diversity in college 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.
- How is Augsburg doing at attracting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how Augsburg is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Augsburg?
Diversity can be promoted by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to foster meaningful connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
