Diversity Statements and Addendum? Help!

Postby Sandstorm » Sat Nov 06, 2010 2:55 pm

Some of the schools I'm looking at say that a Diversity Statement is optional but you may also include an addendum on work experience or extracurricular activities.

I guess my question is: what exactly is a diversity statement? I'm not diverse in the sense of race, nationality, creed etc. and I don't have any fantastic dramatic life changing moments or problems in my life. But I do have a diverse internship experience, I've had around 7 different internships and I've been doing a couple internships at the same time. In addition to that I've had a wide range of summer jobs. Could these experiences be used to create a diversity statement? or is that not really the point of a diversity statement.

If is should only be included in an addendum, how long can an addendum be? How long can a diversity statement be?
