Princeton grad students agitate for a mandatory diversity course
Not content with the number of requirements they already must complete for a graduate degree, public policy students at Princeton University are demanding a new “half-term distribution requirement” in diversity, equity and inclusion.
The issue is under consideration by the Woodrow Wilson School’s faculty, and around 50 graduate students demonstrated outside a faculty council meeting last week in support of the proposed mandate, The Daily Princetonian reports.
The activism is being led by a three-year-old student group known as Students For Educational Equity and Diversity:
The idea for the pilot program arose in early 2019 out of a WWS DEI standing committee, comprised of faculty, students, and administrators. The program would require students to complete one half-term course related to diversity and inclusion from a list pre-authorized by administrators.
The proposal takes inspiration from the newly announced Culture and Difference distribution requirement for undergraduate students, which will commence with the Class of 2024 this fall.
The proposed mandate is most popular among those studying international relations (74 percent), international development (86 percent) and domestic policy (84 percent), as determined by an online poll by the Woodrow Wilson Action Committee, the unorthodox name of the graduate student government.
