A Question on Diversity

Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

A "Roving Reporter" Asks Students their opinions on the diversity of the campus. In it, many of the students specify one of two different opinions, that the campus lacks diversity, or it does not, and then explain why they think so in varying levels of detail. Among those that think Ursinus College lacks diversity, they agree that it it not the College itself, but the students. While minorities aren't segregated, there are groups of students that do not stray from their respective groups. They even go into further detail, citing peoples lack of understanding of certain cultures. These students, who have a problem with the diversity(or lack thereof) on Ursinus' campus are not coincidentally the majority, showing clearly how people on campus were reacting to racial tension on campus.
