Are there any (nonprofit) colleges or universities without programs, offices, or administrators for Diversity? In the United States, I mean, or, secondarily, anywhere in the West.
Type “Diversity” in Harvard’s site and you get the picture above. There is the Office of the Assistant to the President, Institutional Diversity and Equity, the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the Harvard Kennedy School, the Office for Student Diversity and Inclusion, The Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership at the Medical School, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the School of Public Health, the Multicultural Diversity program, the Diversity and Explorations Program at the Harvard Divinity School, the Diversity program at the Department of Biostatistics, the list of Diversity and Inclusion Resources, and all that is only on the first page of results. There are ten pages.
“So what,” you say. “Harvard’s soul was lost when they allowed unitarians into the Theology Department.”
True. But who knew the rot had spread to the Biostatistics Department? How about let’s try a decent State school. Ohio State?
They have an official Diversity statement for the main school and the Medical school, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement, an official Diversity Action Plan, statement of Diversity & Inclusion at the Fisher College of Business, Recruitment and Diversity Services at the College of Arts and Sciences, a Diversity statement at the College of Engineering, and many, many, many more.
And I learned University of Michigan’s Chief Diversity Officer, a “long-time activist”, will make $385,000 a year. That’s over $1,000 a day. Each and every day. To be fair (that was a hard word to write), the school will spend $85 million on Diversity, so nearly half a million is nothing.
“Well, you can’t go by that. State schools have long succumbed to politics. How about some small liberal arts place in some tucked away, obscure place like Alabama? How’s Calhoun Community College?”
Nah, Diversity galore. It’s a “learning outcome” in programs of all kinds. Even in computer graphics.
“This is getting tricky. Perhaps a Catholic College? After all, their focus should be on Our Lord and not on current political fads. Give Sacred Heart University a go. ”
“All right. Why not try that Hillsdale College. They’re always advertising on conservative sites.”
Bingo! No programs whatsoever. In fact, the only mention of Diversity (unrelated to biological diversity) comes in the school’s Mission Statement:
The College values the merit of each unique individual, rather than succumbing to the dehumanizing, discriminatory trend of so-called “social justice” and “multicultural diversity,” which judges individuals not as individuals, but as members of a group and which pits one group against other competing groups in divisive power struggles.
That’s one. And, so far, the only one I know about. Surely there must be others, or at least another. Your task, Dear Reader, is to discover these others (or the other).
Ways to check. Go to the school’s site and type “Diversity” in their search box. But also try typing “site:www.school.edu diversity” directly into Google (or your browser’s search bar). The latter search will often turn up mentions the first misses.
Why do we need this list? Primarily as a service to mankind. Diversity is our weakness. Parents need to have a source to know where to send their kids to school where they can, to the best extent possible, avoid indoctrination.
You have to look hard, too. Traditionally, the sciences, since they had to produce actual results aligned to reality, were bastions against political correctness. This is no longer the case, as Harvard’s Diversity in Biostatistics and Medicine prove. Well, the fanatical devotion to global warming has also mired science in politics. Science is no longer safe.
Some individual classes and programs, even at Diversity-laden institutes, hold out. My class, for instance. But they cannot last. Equality is the greatest leveling force known to man. Any appearance of inequality must and will be crushed. As I wrote before, what’s needed is a moat around the school to keep the Chaos outside the gates.
There you have it. Let’s get a list. In the comments, put your successes, but also let us know of your failures, so people don’t have to double check. The Future thanks you.
