How Learning Math Can Improve Diversity at the Nation’s Top Universities

Oct 14, 2016 | Gilbert

America’s elite universities are attempting to address their diversity issues via expanded communications and modified admissions processes. Unfortunately, these approaches can only be so effective, insofar as schools cannot accept students who do not apply. Therefore, expanding a quality higher education to a more diverse portion of the population requires efforts which begin closer to home. Only by instilling the confidence that comes with a solid education can we increase the numbers of minority students applying, and being admitted to some of the nation’s top schools.  
 
That is not to say that the onus for addressing a university’s diversity issues should rest upon the student, or their parents. To be sure, the burden of creating a fair and equal educational system for those of all genders and ethnicities lies with the admissions boards of the schools and the educators who pave the roads to get students to the institutions in the first place. But what parents ​can
​ do is to give their children the best education possible, by giving them the right tools they need to ensure that they will have the confidence to apply at the schools of their choice.
