FEATURE STORY
Teaching Students to Value Difference

“The stereotypes in my head were shattered,” says AKA Hyderabad student Rohan Reddy after working with youth in a rural Indian village. “It wasn’t a one-way exchange. It was two ways.”
Rohan’s experience taught him to appreciate the perspectives of people different from himself – a key element in developing a pluralistic outlook. Nurturing pluralistic leaders is integral to the Academies programme. It requires focused effort both in the classroom and through experiences that engage students with people from diverse backgrounds.
