Diversity Makes a Difference
It's quite possible you have heard that diversity is important to the full university experience, but what do we mean when we talk about diversity?
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.
So, what are we striving for when we want to see more diversity in college?
When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are 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 backgrounds and cultures.
In order to achieve the most benefit from diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by actively recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups, but are also encouraging an environment where there is confident interaction between different groups.
