Why Diversity is Valuable
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers. What does it mean to you?
Often when we speak of diversity, what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, cultures, races, beliefs and financial backgrounds.
How does this translate to the university experience?
Students who express 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.
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 different perspectives and ideas in positive and meaningful ways.
