Why Diversity Matters
What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe a mixture of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are actually 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 cultures and backgrounds.
The college years provide a unique opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a college administration that is not only promoting diversity institutionally, but also fostering a climate where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
