How is Diversity Important to You?
What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, races, cultures, beliefs and economic backgrounds.
How does this translate to the college experience?
When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are actually looking for 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 backgrounds and cultures.
Diversity can be encouraged 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 connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents faculty and students from becoming isolated and helps bring about positive connections.
