“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?

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.
