“perspectives of groups who have historically been excluded from dominant cultural narratives or structures of social power”
If you were hoping the current crisis would stave off some of the social justice requirements in higher ed, you’re out of luck.

Princeton U. announces courses which fulfill new ‘Culture and Difference’ requirement
Forty-one course offerings will satisfy Princeton University’s new “Culture and Difference” requirement this fall semester, as the university aims to expose students to the “perspectives of groups who have historically been excluded from dominant cultural narratives or structures of social power.”
According to The Daily Princetonian, Deputy University Spokesperson Michael Hotchkiss said the new mandate “ensures that […] students encounter the cultural analysis of difference,” which he claimed is “an essential disciplinary approach that had not previously been reflected in our requirements.”
A year ago, the DP reported that “faculty and students alike” believed the then-proposed course requirement changes were “necessary.”
For example, after taking the course SOC 227: Race and Ethnicity, one student said “[you] can’t have a university education and not have a course on race and ethnicity and what role this plays in people’s lives and the role of the government.” A university lecturer approved of “Culture and Difference” because it “acknowledges that structures of power influence the ways we all inhabit the world.”
