    Demystifying Diversity: An Attempt to Unpack Cultural Scripts at Colorado College by Malecek, Anne

    This paper seeks to explore issues of social inclusivity (and exclusivity) at Colorado College, as diversity related issues prove to be problematic for universities across the nation. In this specific study, I examined how structural factors (socioeconomic status, race, and numerical representation) influence campus belonging, as I conducted a correspondence analysis on social clique formation at CC. In doing so, I ultimately found that the existing structures/cultural scripts that construct CC reality greatly inhibit students of color from establishing membership on campus, as social belonging and particularity is privilege reserved for the elite (the white). Campus inequality thus lies within this distinction, as (rich) whites are allowed to become embodied performers of the CC brand, while (poor) students of color are cast as the sole performers of CC “diversity” and campus difference.
