College aged students today are bombarded with pro-diversity messaging from the time they enter grade school. Why do college students need programs like these?

George Washington University forces new students to attend diversity skits, workshops

George Washington University will introduce mandatory “diversity measures” for new students starting this fall, with a series of skits and workshops meant to promote “dialogue about inclusivity” on the private, Washington D.C. campus.

The new program comes several months after a racial controversy at the school in which members of the Alpha Phi sorority posted a picture on Snapchat of a young woman holding a banana peel with the caption: “I’m 1/16th black.” The individuals in the photograph later claimed that they were unaware that the caption had been attached to the photograph.

Public outrage on the campus led to calls for administrative action. This led George Washington University officials to pledge new diversity measures and inclusion training, among them mandatory programs for freshmen. Those programs will be implemented in the fall of this year for the first time, according to the campus newspaper the GW Hatchet.

Though university spokeswoman Maralee Csellar did not respond to requests from The College Fix regarding the content of the diversity training, she told The Hatchet that the university hopes “to introduce students to some of the issues they may face and also to introduce them to the University resources that may be able to help in each situation. Diversity and inclusion topics are highlighted in one thread of the skits, but are presented in context and are not the sole focus of the skits writ large.”
