Universities Hire Diversity Administrators While Collecting Coronavirus Stimulus Cash

Universities Hire Diversity Administrators While Collecting Coronavirus Stimulus Cash

“comes as thousands of universities around the country collect billions of dollars”

How worried can these schools really be about the future if they’re still making these pointless hires?

Campus Reform reports:

Universities hire new diversity czars while collecting federal bailout dollars

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple colleges are still committed to hiring administrators for diversity initiatives on campus. This comes as thousands of universities around the country collect billions of dollars in bailout money from American taxpayers.

Colleges are receiving this money from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, which specifically outlines each allocation of federal money to each college.

One of the universities receiving these funds is the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, which announced Thursday that it recently hired a new “director of diversity and community relations” officer, specifically for its business school.

The school explained that the new hire is important because he will “provide strategic leadership in creating an integrated vision and shared responsibility for facilitating the college’s diversity goals and for fostering and supporting a campus culture that respects and appreciates individual differences.”

The University of Tennessee-Knoxville is set to receive a whopping $19,258,313 in CARES bailout money. UT’s other three campuses, UT-Chattanooga, UT-Martin, and the UT Health Science Center will receive an extra $15.6 million.

Salem State University in Massachusetts announced on April 16 that it hired a new vice president for diversity and inclusion, Sean T. Bennett. He starts his new gig on June 1. Salem State is set to receive more than $6.5 million in CARES Act funding.

They’re spending money on what is important to them. Did congress tell them no? Of course not! When politicians give away huge pots of money, they don’t want to be bothered with the details. They just want to be loved for being so generous.

Meanwhile, the ratchet keeps ratcheting in the same direction as always.

Most of America’s colleges and universities are left-wing sewers–making it all the more important that scientific research and training be transferred to government-funded institutes leaving the colleges and universities to rot away in irrelevance

“provide strategic leadership in creating an integrated vision and shared responsibility for facilitating the college’s diversity goals and for fostering and supporting a campus culture that respects and appreciates individual differences.”

Can someone please cut through all this buzzword crap and tell us exactly what, in concrete terms, this person is expected to do — other than collect a paycheck?

I get the feeling that it’s mostly about chairing a committee to wordsmith yet another Code of Conduct document, perhaps along with using more of the public’s money to bring in some fellow grifters to conduct struggle sessions.

Have I got that right?

Monitor the speech and actions of the staff and students to identify those who are racists and punish them. This includes manufacturing fake acts of racism to inspire and mobilize the university against racism.

What exactly does a university diversity administrator do other than raise tuition?
