Why Diversity is Valuable
It's quite possible you have heard that diversity is important to the university experience, but what do we mean when we discuss the topic of diversity?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe a mixing together of people, traditions, ideas and cultures.
How does this translate to the university 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 varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
Diversity can be encouraged by the university in several ways. First, institutions should be making an effort to hire a varied faculty to teach students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to encourage substantial interactions between people from different backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from self-segregating and helps bring about positive connections.
