Whether you go away for college or study at a school in your hometown, you’ll be better prepared for life and career if you continue your education in an environment that celebrates diversity. Almost every school tries to project an air of diversity and inclusion. Finding the ones that truly are diverse is the trick. Here are some things to look for:
- A dedicated diversity office or office of multicultural affairs.
- Multicultural clubs and associations. The more the better.
- The percentage of the student body that is part of a minority group.
- Degree programs that address diversity/inclusion.
- A calendar of events that includes activities dedicated to diversity and inclusion.
- Scholarship and financial aid opportunities specifically for minority/low-income students.
- A diverse faculty.
