Diversity at Colleges and Universities through Multicultural Recruiting

One aspect of the college experience that is often overlooked, but is nonetheless important for students, is the campus’ diversity and multiculturalism. What does this mean? It means that the entire campus values the perspective of people from all different types of backgrounds.

Diversity is traditionally about race, ethnicity, and gender, but it also includes sexual orientation, religion, age, and socioeconomic status. By going to a college that values diversity and multiculturalism in their students, faculty, and administrative staff, students will be better prepared for a global society.

Why diversity is important to the university

For the university, diversity means that the campus is viewed as a welcoming environment for anyone who wants to apply. Having an inclusive mission at an educational institution says something progressive and important about their campus that they value diversity and will allow their students to express themselves as they see fit.

A university’s mission statement will usually include some type of inclusive language about their educational philosophy, and if it doesn’t then you should look further into why they don’t. National development relies on a society that is inclusive and accepting of diverse populations, so most every college will have this language.

Don’t just accept their mission statement at face value, though. Look into their student activities, clubs, and campus organizations to make sure there are funds and students dedicated to a mission that are also important to you, for example, an LGBTQ+ office or Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
