We come to college with our own experiences, understandings and view of the world. We also bring more than a few misconceptions and stereotypes. It only takes one class to realize the world is much, much larger than we thought. Learning about other people can be exciting, interesting, and sometimes challenging. We can learn about each other and what makes us similar and different--and have those same things bring us closer together!

But what do we mean when we say " diversity?" Diversity is a term that refers to an inclusive community of people with varied human characteristics, ideas, and world-views, and whose interactions both benefit and challenge each other to grow while making the community better.

Characteristics of diversity are (but not limited to): age; cognitive style; culture; disability (mental, learning, physical); economic background; education; ethnicity; gender identity; geographic background; language(s) spoken; marital/partnered status; physical appearance; political affiliation; race; religious beliefs; sexual orientation or veteran's status.

Social Justice - this is the fair administration of laws conforming to the natural law that all persons, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion, e.t.c, are to be treated equally and without prejudice.

Multiculturalism - Celebrating human diversity by willingly promoting legal, political, and social recognition of cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and religious differences.
