Why Diversity is Valuable
What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
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.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are seeking are opportunities to express themselves and find community with others who believe the same way, as well as opportunities to learn from those from different backgrounds and cultures.
The university years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have exposure to other cultures and backgrounds. Students should look for a university administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
