Questions About Diversity
- 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 an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. When most students seek diversity on a college 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.
- How is CSUCI doing at attracting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how CSUCI is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to CSUCI?
The university 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 encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange differing perspectives and ideas in meaningful and positive ways.
