UC President Janet Napolitano On Diversity

Description

Diversity expands our horizons, incubates ideas and knowledge, and challenges us to think differently.

It is not just about having a diverse population on campus, but about having frequent, meaningful interactions among diverse groups of people. This builds understanding, bridges differences and adds depth to the educational experience in a way that no textbook or class lecture can. Our young people need to learn to interact with many different people to prepare for the complexity of life beyond the classroom.

Diversity also fosters the kind of creativity, innovation and problem solving that advances us, socially and economically (Napolitano, 2016).
