Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers. What does it mean to you?
Largely speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of individuals and ideas, and the traditions, belief systems and cultures 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 creativity and innovation.
In order to achieve the most benefit from diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by actively recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups, but are also promoting an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
