Secrets from the Admissions Office
While I know everyone reading our Vandy Admissions Blog loves hearing from me, I want to point readers today to a Newsweek Education article. Our Dean of Admissions sat down with Newsweek Education and answered critical questions we hear everyday in OUA.
Dr. Christiansen is truly an expert in the field of higher education. I love the way he talks about diversity at Vanderbilt,
“Real diversity is about diversity of thought, of expression, of experience, of background. We want students who come from small towns in Iowa and from New York City. We want students of color and majority students. We want people who can add thought perspectives to our educational environment. People don’t have to agree, but they need to have the ability to understand and empathize, be able to put themselves in someone else’s perspective, know that there is a different perspective.”
