SPOTLIGHT on LSA
The Case for Diversity
Diversity beats sameness, and one LSA professor is out to prove it. With his book The Difference, Scott E. Page (A.B. ’85), an honors math alumnus and current professor of complex systems, political science, and economics, uses math and logic to make the case that higher diversity yields greater tangible benefits. Now, Page gets invited to consult with organizations like the Mellon Foundation, Google, the U.S. Federal Reserve, the U.S. Treasury, and NASA, among others. They’re taking his argument seriously and running with it in the real world.
Likewise, diverse perspectives are vital to the liberal arts mission of LSA. Departments throughout the College see value in diversity—with benefits both tangible and intangible—and are taking action as a result: They’re developing plans and programs to create a more diverse student body and faculty.
The Power of Internships
At LSA, we understand that to change the world takes actually experiencing it. And we are committed to providing our students the support they need in order to pair their LSA education with real-life opportunities. Watch how LSA internships are changing students’ perspectives on their coursework and giving them a crucial advantage in their careers.
