Both diversity and multiculturalism refer to the same concept but use different words todescribe it. Multiculturalism, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, is the belief thatcultures, races, and ethnicities, especially minority groups, deserve special recognition for theirdiversity within a dominant political culture (Multiculturalism," n.d.).Multiculturalism is alsoreferred to as "multiracialism" and "ethnoculturalism." Multiculturalism is sometimes dubbed"cultural pluralism" (Nair, 2021).Schools are, more than ever, a microcosm of our greater society because of the growingvariety and uniqueness that can be seen in today's education system. Therefore, it is theobligation of the community at a school to foster the development of a global mindset. A mindthat is steadily shifting toward a global mindset is necessary to function well in a moreinterconnected world ("Building school communities," 2020).School communities need to have people from many different cultures in a world thatchanges quickly. If people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and walks of life could betterunderstand one another, our world would become more stable and peaceful, and it would beeasier for us to advance as a society. In order to be culturally diverse, instructors and other schoolstaff need to have a solid understanding of cultural identity, lifestyle backgrounds,communication methods, morals…etc. ("What is cultural diversity?," n.d.).
