Diversity issues on the Whitewater campus can be considered a problem that have much to do with the culturally different backgrounds that many students have with other students. Whitewater provides a great opportunity for all students to succeed and has a great curriculum; however, it is clear that at times Whitewater has had instances in which students have a hard time accepting different cultural values and actions. Cultural values and ultimately etiquette are very important or culturally embedded values that if threatened can arise a sense of tense and threatening provocations. Because of the nature of these threats cultural values can crash and cause instances that arise diversity acceptance issues.
I believe that if there was one thing that would help the trust of students toward one another is campus security. It would be very reassuring to all students if there were outpost that could phone police and maybe security cameras so that students wouldn’t have to be concerned about cultural discrimination. Individuals would commit objectifying crimes if they knew that their responsibility and involvement would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If justice is truly done then students will truly learn to have respect for each other. In my opinion, if Whitewater is ever to become a more prestigious school the students, no matter what class or background, need to be able to truly trust each other and hold a high level of respect for one another. Any time a vandalism or robbery or any similar offense occurs, the actions remark scares to the whole university and not just the person victimized. These instances are serious matters of insecurity. I believe if Whitewater can make it a habit to communicate the seriousness of these acts to their fellow classmates people will automatically begin to value and cherish each other’s security and respect as well as feel more proud of the valor of their university and the caliber of its students.
