Diversity Makes a Difference
It's quite possible you have heard that diversity is important to the full university experience, but what do we mean when we talk about diversity?
Largely speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of individuals and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them.
How does this translate to the university experience?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ideas and ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
In order to achieve the most benefit from diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups actively, but are also encouraging an environment where there is positive interaction between different groups.
