College Mandates Diversity Training Due to Student Protester Demands

“budgeting an additional $20,000 for its Center for Diversity and Inclusion”

This is a trend, not an isolated incident. Diversity is quickly becoming part of the curriculum at many schools. Left wing concepts are becoming more important than academics.

Folding to student protesters, college mandates diversity training, gives $20K to diversity center

The College of Wooster is budgeting an additional $20,000 for its Center for Diversity and Inclusion and adding new trainings to fight discrimination following a “sit-in” by student protesters earlier this semester.

The sit-in, which took place in the Ohio campus’s Galpin Hall, comprised around 350 students, or nearly 20 percent of the undergraduate student population of approximately 2,000. The protest was sparked by “a Facebook post by a student,” according to ABC Channel 5 Cleveland.

During the protests, which took place in late January, students issued a list of 23 demands to the administration, including a “student-led Administrative Transparency Board”; mandatory “consent and bystander intervention training” for new students; a “survivor hotline and house” staffed by students “dedicated to ending sexual violence on the College of Wooster Campus”; and numerous other stipulations.

The demands also called for an unspecified increase in funding for the school’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

In response to that demand, earlier this month the college allocated an additional $20,000 for the center, according to an email from college President Sarah Bolton.

The school will also implement “training for all students, staff, and faculty to create a more equitable and inclusive campus,” Bolton wrote.
