Questions About Diversity

The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe a mixture of peoples, traditions, ideas and cultures. When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are actually seeking 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.
- How is U of Denver doing at supporting students from all income levels?
Even a school with high racial, ethnic and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the financial backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how U of Denver is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to U of Denver?
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.

This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and promotes positive connections.
