Diversity is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted words used in the most diverse country in the world. In Idaho, the diversity within our population is one of the lowest in the nation, with very little improvement historically. Because of this reality, those within the minority are faced with complex and dynamic issues that are underserved—and underrepresented. At Boise State, students have identified these issue and have created communities, started organizations, and are even holding positions in student government. The Black Student Association has become a community for African-American and Black students, with members working to bridge the cultural gap of diversity here at Boise State—from changing university policy, to conducting the first Black Graduation. This organization started as a community for students and has evolved into a vital asset to the university—and the state.
Nathaniel is currently pursuing a major in Multidisciplinary Studies, with a certificate in Leadership and Human relations. They chose this major because it aligned with the improving the leadership skills they obtained in the military and gave them the decision to build my own degree path. They not only gained a tremendous amount of insight from the course work but also incredible networking opportunities that have grown into career options in the future.
