Officials at Bucknell University Say More Must be Done on Social Justice Issues

“announced the creation of a fund by reallocating existing resources to support campus-wide anti-racism and anti-bias efforts”

This is the top priority at many schools. Not improving academics, not trimming budgets and lowering tuition, just this.

Penn Live reports:

Bucknell University officials say more needs to be done on social justice issues

“Black lives do matter at Bucknell,” members of the university community have been assured by top officials in an email.

But, President John Bravman and Chris O’Brien, chair of the board of trustees said: “Bucknell can and must do more when it comes to issues that focus on justice, equity and human rights.”

They announced the creation of a fund by reallocating existing resources to support campus-wide anti-racism and anti-bias efforts, including facilitator training, resource materials, curriculum development, faculty, staff and student education, and programming.

By coincidence their email was sent at the same time a coalition of students supporting the Black Lives Matter movement submitted letters to the trustees demanding changes, Bucknell spokesman Mike Ferlazzo said Tuesday.

The email was in the planning stage before the letters were received, he said.

Bravman and O’Brien pledge “to create more opportunities to listen to individuals and groups concerning their experiences at Bucknell and how our work must evolve to make Bucknell better.

“Similarly, and at least annually, the board of trustees will, as a whole, directly engage with diverse members of the community on critical issues concerning the university.”

Resources must be allocated “to do all we can as a university to cultivate an academic environment that is socially just, equitable, inclusive, accessible and diverse,” they said.

Social Justice is like walking into a public restroom and finding that the previous occupant could not be disposed of to flush behind themselves.

Want to see Social Justice at work? Watch the people who run red lights, stop signs, cut ahead of everyone else when lanes narrow down.

The perverts who wallow in sorrow over their perceived loss of Social Justice are those who bring nothing to the system because they have nothing. They have nothing because they waste their lives wandering around trying to regulate others and demanding to count someone else’s money.
