Why Diversity Should Matter to You
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?
Students who say that diversity in school is important to them are looking for institutions to provide a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
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 meaningful interaction between different groups.
