Diversity Makes a Difference
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.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
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, in addition to inspiring creativity and innovation.
The university years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a university administration that is not only encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering a climate where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in positive and meaningful ways.
