Why Diversity Should Matter to You
It's likely you have heard that diversity is important to the total university experience, but what do we mean when we speak 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.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are looking for 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 cultures and backgrounds.
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 promoting an environment where there is meaningful interaction between different groups.
