How is Diversity Important to You?
What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, races, cultures, beliefs and economic backgrounds.
How does this translate to the college experience?
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 university 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 encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange different ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
