Poverty is a serious issue which our society and children faces every day. It is a constant struggle that shouldn’t be ignored. UNICEF states “The study of OECD countries in 2007, over fourteen percent of Australian children under the age of eighteen are currently living in households who are defined as poor or with incomes less than half of the median national income”. The increase in the number and percentage of children living in poverty within our society has contributed to making today's classrooms more diverse than ever it has been. This highlights and makes both teaching and learning more challenging. Diversity exists in the students who are living in poverty and the education assistant and teachers must provide the concept of diversity
Within the core of many educational institutions, diversity is a commercial tacit. While every institution cannot offer the same kind of diversity, the endorsement of such exists through various definitions. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges define diversity through the various classes: race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, disability, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and age (“Statement on Diversity”)
Diversity is a term known for, "variety." To be diverse is to have a range of different types of people all in one place. Different types of people can range from their race, background, social class, age, or religion. Those are just a few examples that can separate a person from others. To be aware of diversity around you is something everyone should take note of. Many people may not realize that they live in such a diverse world that they do not know how to cope with someone when they do find someone with a different background than they do. Washburn University has a very diverse population and Washburn and most of the students and faculty are aware of this and take great pride in it. Washburn University is not the biggest college and it
Washburn University has always been proud of having diversity since it first opened its doors to the public 151 years ago. If you are to look around campus many are able to see how much diversity is valued by the campus as a whole, they know everyone is different and each person has their own story to tell. If a university made it where no one is allowed to talk about where they came before and how they ended up where they are in life. what is the point of being proud of who you are? For me, it is important for each person to be proud of the person who they are because they could have had to overcome so much in life to make it to this point of being an undergraduate.
Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville is a school that supports diversity. I would recommend partnering with them.
In the wake of the recent presidential election a wave of discomfort, despair, and devastating anxiety has swept across some of our citizens. Protests and riots have emerged across the U.S. in an effort to make this realized apprehension heard. Those who feel negatively impacted by the election may feel lost or uncertain of the future for their families, friends, or for themselves. They may feel as if their voices have gone unheard.
Growing up, I had a basic understanding of diversity and the importance of inclusivity. Before attending the University of Maryland, I only considered race and gender when thinking of diversity since those are two of my own identities. Living in residence halls and getting involved in extra curricular activities, my self-awareness and understanding of other identities increased.
This essay will be arguing that colleges and universities should promote more efforts to diversify and create equal representation of all students. Attending higher education institution for minorities has been an uneasy struggle and one that few minorities accomplish. The dilemma of African American enrollment for example, in a college lecture hall at Texas A&M containing 250 seats, only a maximum 4 out of 250 seats will contain African American students. Unfortunately, many institutions are similar to Texas A&M University, they have an underrepresentation of minorities their on campus in relationship to white students. The lack of diversity keeps stigmas associated with racism relevant and disregards the demographic representation of
Diversity is not merely defined as originating from a different culture. Diversity is everything that makes you unique. In detail, the most diverse part of human life is not only their genes, and where they originate from, but also their experiences, and what helped shape them. Personally, I come from family with very diverse roots. My grandmother is Hispanic, my grandfather, German. And my other two grandparents are of Irish, French, and English origins. I have developed a strong sense of racial diversity due to my family coming from so many different areas. Upon attending the University of Washington, I will add to not only the racial diversity I obtain, but also the socioeconomic diversity of being a minority due to the fact that I am a first generation college student from a lower middle class family. Equally as important, I am a woman in pursuing a medical degree determined to succeed.
Diversity is a major quality that attracts me to Northwestern. It is important for me to be surrounded by different backgrounds, experiences and outlooks. The diversity at Northwestern is shown in the types of organizations and programs available to students. Another quality is what makes Northwestern an excellent university. Underneath their mission statement, its states, “Northwestern is committed to excellent teaching, innovative research and the personal and intellectual growth of its students in a diverse academic community.” A university that cares about their students’ success and takes pride in their mission to provide the greatest education is a crucial aspect on why I want to attend to Northwestern.
By this class meeting a diversity requirement, it means that a subject that is not commonly taught is available for us so that we may gain a new prospective on how we live, what we want to focus on, continue scaffolding along this educational path, and it is an opportunity to learn something new. By taking a diversity course, we are voluntarily engaging in a class to discover what else there is to life and how we can look at it from all points of view whether it’s the view of man, woman, child, politician, or otherwise. This course qualifies as a diversity requirement due to the patriarchal ways that most psychological courses and studies were created. The fight for equality among the sexes has driven more psychologist to take a more in-depth
Students have their own best way in effectively learning the lesson. With the diversity of students, the problem is each student has a preferred learning style. It becomes undeniably one of the reasons that make it difficult to achieve the best expected outcome out of teachers’ effort. However, teachers try to incorporate various teaching techniques to make every learning opportunity become productive, meaningful, and relevant for the learners.
I would like to open by identifying leadership theories that fit me the best. Honestly I believe all three fit me and I will begin with a brief backstory to explain why. Prior to coming to the University of Toledo I spent 17.5 years working for the Lucas County Juvenile Court specifically at the Lucas County Youth Treatment Center where our charge was to save the taxpayers of Lucas money by lowering the amount of youth who were committed to the Department of Youth Services in Columbus (Juvenile Prison). Our program focused on arming offending youth with the skills to re-orient safely back into the Lucas County Community. We could house 44 youth 36 male, 12 female at maximum capacity
Bringing a diverse structure to medicine is vital for generating a change in the medical field such as reducing healthcare disparities and improving health care for all. Diversity is imperative because it provides us with the opportunity to learn from one another by exhibiting a level of understanding that assists us in facilitating collaboration and cooperation. Once we learn about other cultures it helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live, and helps to dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups. Student diversity for example needs to be vocalized more in medical education because it can become a key component in creating a physician workforce that can meet the needs of a diverse
Being a woman of color means I am inevitably silenced by the superior white male, yet being an activist eliminates my voice by the majority in all forms. My first year of college has been interesting, to say the very least. I’ve grown accustomed to the distinct differences and surprising similarities between myself and the hundreds, maybe thousands, of other students on campus, which I wasn’t familiar with among the fifty-two people in my high school graduating class.
