How is Diversity Important to You?
It is quite possible you've heard that diversity is critical to the college experience, but what do we mean when we discuss the topic of diversity?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, races, cultures, religions and economic backgrounds.
How does this translate to the college experience?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to nurture students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to encourage meaningful interaction between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and helps bring about positive connections.
