Why Diversity is Important
What do we mean when we talk about diversity in college?
Broadly speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of people and ideas, and the traditions, belief systems and cultures that come with them.
How does this translate to the college experience?
Students who say that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to offer a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, religions, and classes.
The college years provide a unique opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other cultures and backgrounds. Students should look for a college administration that is not only encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering a climate where students can exchange differing ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
