Diversity Makes a Difference
It's quite possible you have heard that diversity is important to the university experience, but what do we mean when we discuss the topic of 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?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ways of thinking, it prepares them for the varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires innovation and creativity.
The university years provide a one of a kind opportunity for students to have exposure to other cultures and backgrounds. Students should look for a university 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.
