“we actively engage in discourse and are inclusive in our actions”
Higher education is absolutely obsessed with diversity. Schools boast about their commitment to it all the time but this is a bit much.
The College Fix reports:
UNC Charlotte offers 345 ‘diversity’ courses
Scrolling through a spreadsheet listing every possible diversity class within the University of North Carolina-Charlotte’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences might take some time.
That’s because the inventory is very extensive.
The 21-page list, dubbed “CLAS Diversity Courses,” details 345 classes representing a broad spectrum of fields and majors, including Religious Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, and Africana Studies.
Department chairs and program directors helped aggregate the diversity list after students, during a forum, made requests for more diverse perspectives to be made readily available.
The Associate Dean of UNC-Charlotte, Shawn Long, told The College Fix that courses offered by the public university — whether on this list or not — support students by fostering a fundamental understanding of diversity, unique learning styles, cultural differences and human relationships.
“When we consider the concept of diversity, broadly speaking, we mean that lives, perspectives and practices are enriched when we actively engage in discourse and are inclusive in our actions around complex ideas and issues,” Long said.
Long added that among those issues are race and ethnicity; sex; gender identity; political viewpoints; sexual orientation; special health needs; age; belief system; country of origin; or socio-economic status.
