While Elon University might be working hard to increase racial and cultural diversity, as a university we still fall short of meeting the kind of racial and cultural ratio we should have if we are going to boast about our “global engagement”. Coming to Elon I knew that I wouldn’t be seeing as much diversity as I was used to, but when I found out that only 20 percent of my class identified as a person of color, I was appalled. According to a study done in 2015 by the Pew Research Center, about 35% of people in the United States identify as a person of color.
