Ugh!!! Need Complicated Essay Help

I need help writing an essay. It talks about global leadership as a leading public university, and then it says In your own words, what are the implications of this aspiration for diversity in our university community and for your own collegiate experiece?

What exactly are they asking for?

    I think they want to hear why you think diversity benefits a university and why you think diversity would contribute to you personally getting a better education. Probably you could talk about your own experiences up to now with diversity and what you learned from it or you could talk about the limitations of your experience up to now in situations lacking diversity. Would be useful also to explore the different ways that groups can be "diverse". They also want you to connect this with issues of "global leadership".

    Focus on some specific themes that interest you and relate to your potential major: cultural understanding in the business world
    scientific cooperation across cultures
    postcolonial literature
    different political institutions.

    Don't just string together a lot of generalizations--be specific and relate to you own experience.
