Frequently Asked Questions
4. How diverse is your membership?
At its inception, Theta Nu Xi did not specifically strive to bring together a multicultural group of women - our goal was to bring together women who were "multiculturally-minded" - who shared the common goal of appreciating and learning from each others' differences. Our founders were united in 1997 not by their obvious racial differences, but by their internal desire to bring about a greater appreciation of diversity in their campus and community.
Our members are diverse with respect to race, culture, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, nationality/language-spoken, political views, geographic origin (both domestic and international), and even in the category of our academic majors. We have found that while we still have a ways to go, we are significantly more diverse than the overall American population, and especially the American college population.
