As a student, why should I be concerned with diversity? Because you are diverse. Because, if we work with people from different backgrounds, experiences, and working styles, we learn and acquire an alternative outlook that may aid us in making a well-rounded decision in our own lives. Diversity on campuses enables learning with people from a variety of experiences that encourage collaboration and fosters innovation, thus benefitting all.
