Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

On the surface, diversity at Stout is subpar. Approximately 90 percent of students at Stout are white, making those all important diverse perspectives and friendships a challenge. On the other hand, the chancellor has implemented a diversity initiative to get us on track. But in reality, what do you expect?—Stout is in rural Wisconsin. When you examine further, you will realize that diversity is not just the color of your skin or your ancestry; it is how your parents raised you, your values, economic class, religion, etc. When you look deeper, you will find much diversity in any campus.

Stout does have a fair share of international students. There are about 37 flags hanging in the Memorial Student Center. These flags represent the countries that make up the UW-Stout student population. The flags are updated every year in collaboration with International Student Services. In addition, Stout offers many multicultural student organizations. There is even a place in the Memorial Student Center called the Ally Center, where students can go to learn more about the differences between each other. The center offers many events and retreats throughout the year, as well.

Gay Pride
For the most part, students are fairly gay-tolerant at UW-Stout. However, being a college in rural Wisconsin, some students may be hesitant to come out or be themselves. Out@Stout and partnering departments on campus offer many events during the week of National Coming Out. During recent years, the UW-Stout Police Department has reported few hate crimes.
Economic Status
UW-Stout students come from diverse economic backgrounds. Most students, however, come from middle-class families. Most Stout students work while attending school, either to pay for school or just for some extra spending money. The campus alone employs 2,500 students. Approximately 60 percent of Stout students receive federal financial aid.
Most Common Religions
Christianity and Catholicism are the dominant religions.
Minority Clubs on Campus
For a medium-sized college campus in rural Wisconsin, there is a fair amount of minority student organizations. Some include: Black Student Union, Hmong Stout Student Association, Latinos Unidos, and Out@Stout.
