Diversity has never been very strong at Maryville, but the University has been trying to make strides in this area. The diversity of the campus will continue to strengthen every year by having more student involvement in culturally centered programs at the University. Currently, the student body is mostly Caucasian women, but the percentage of guys continues to grow. It may take some time to actually see the change, but eventually the school should notice an increase in minorities.
The Multicultural Club and the Association Black Collegian are just a few of the organizations at Maryville that try to broaden the range of diversity and integrate events that give the students more awareness about other cultural lifestyles.
