Questions About Diversity

The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. Students who say that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to provide a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
- Is Centenary supporting students from all income backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Centenary is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Centenary?
Diversity can be promoted 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 promote meaningful interaction between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
