metropolitan area rich in cultural diversity

Hi! I read a CV sample with the following sentence:
“More than 15 years as a teacher in New York metropolitan area rich in cultural diversity.”

Why "rich in cultural diversity" can be attached directly to "area"?
Shouldn't it be "...in New York metropolitan area which is rich in cultural diversity"?
In what case "which is" can or cannot be omitted? Any other example?
Thanks!

    Sometimes people include phrases in CVs which are not complete sentences, in much the same way that newspaper headlines are abbreviated. It looks like your example may be in this style.
    The complete sentence would be
    I have spent more than 15 years as a teacher in the New York metropolitan area, which is rich in cultural diversity.
