Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers alike. What does it mean to you?
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 backgrounds and cultures.
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 fostering an environment where there is positive interaction between different groups.
