As a Latina woman, my interest in racial diversity stems from pride for my Mexican culture and being aware of other cultures as well. As a Marquette student, I have become extremely aware of the lack of racial diversity on campus. The division between white students and minorities is extremely visible and noticed campus-wide by students and teachers. I began to wonder the reasons behind the noticeable difference and why no one felt the need to make a change or bring the issue to light. The line between the two groups sparked my interest and led to my decision to explore the issue of racial diversity on campus and how it is accepted and integrated into the community.
