The importance of diversity in education faculties

Diversity goes beyond colour and ethnic backgrounds, also including customs, cultural and religious experiences, political views, sexual orientation, and more.The very definition of ‘diverse’, according to Cambridge Dictionary, is “including many different types of people or things”.Universities are constantly encouraged to employ a diverse faculty – and for good reason.In today’s global market, people are travelling more, and working abroad has become a lot more accessible. People of all walks of life can easily travel across borders and boundaries to exchange ideas and share knowledge with eachother.Plus, the growth of online programmes makes it easier for remote faculty members to engage with students all over the world.It has thus become easier for universities to make their faculty more diverse, yet many still haven’t fully embraced just how important it is.Here is why having a diverse faculty is extremely important and beneficial not only to students, but also institutions and faculty members themselves.Students need role models and positive relationships with teachers. This gives them a sense of belonging and comfort, meaning they will be able to study better and enjoy classes and academic experience.
