Why Diversity Should Matter to You
What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
Broadly speaking, diversity is the word we use to describe a mixture of individuals and ideas, and the traditions, belief cultures and systems that come with them.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
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 varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativeness and innovation.
In order to achieve the most benefit from diversity on campus, seek out schools that are not only promoting diversity by recruiting students and hiring faculty from minority groups actively, but are also promoting an environment where there is confident interaction between different groups.
