Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences and it involves the following dimensions: race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. It involves the means of being able to learn from people from all different walks of life, whether it’s a difference in culture, religion, education background and you are being exposed to these different experiences and perspectives. Diversity should challenge people to not only be tolerant of others, but to try to learn from them. Each Individual brings diverse perspective, work experience, life style and culture and the strength of diversity is of course a source and driver of innovation, diversity is a “big idea” in University and in the community. Faculty, staff and students of the Catholic University Institute of Buea (CUIB) will be able to experience and learn from their peers in a way that they have never encountered before as a result of this diversity.
