“Some examples of trainings will include unconscious and implicit bias, racial/gender microaggressions”
What dies this have to do with serious academic study? It’s just more ridiculous left wing politics.

Massive new diversity initiative at San Diego State combats faculty microaggressions, bias
San Diego State University is working on a massive new diversity effort that aims to combat faculty microaggressions, reduce bias, and increase diversity among new hires.
Campus leaders are creating a new diversity bureaucracy from among its faculty ranks to roll out the program, including a provost position as well as “professors of equity” to oversee the operation. They will be given reduced teaching loads and monetary compensation for their efforts, which will include training all faculty campuswide on various diversity and inclusion practices.
The diversity initiative was spelled out in an email to the campus community from J. Luke Wood, associate vice president for faculty diversity and inclusion at San Diego State.
“Some examples of trainings will include unconscious and implicit bias, racial/gender microaggressions, teaching practices for underserved students, cultural competency, and becoming a Hispanic serving institution,” Wood stated in his email.
The impetus for the initiative is a University Senate resolution approved in February 2018 “to create a campus-wide diversity plan,” according to the email from Wood, which added the resolution required individual diversity plans be developed for all academic and administrative divisions.
