Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ideas and ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativity and innovation.
- How is USJ doing at supporting students from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the income levels of their students. To get a better idea of how USJ is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- Is Diversity Important to USJ?
Diversity can be promoted by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to engage students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to encourage meaningful connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and promotes positive connections.
