Resource Guide: Socioeconomics and Viewpoint Diversity
Although many colleges and universities advocate for increased socioeconomic representation, discussions around the value and impact of socioeconomic viewpoint diversity are scarcely addressed. By engaging with the unique challenges and diverse perspectives among those from different socioeconomic backgrounds, universities can further expand ideological diversity, improve scholarship and research, and decrease misconceptions about class-centered issues.
We hope this resource guide will help you engage with this important topic and encourage you to share them with colleagues.
