It boggles the mind that young people would go into debt for high college tuition, only to be forced to take social justice requirements such as this one.

Emory approves new ‘race and ethnicity’ course requirement

Beginning fall 2021, Emory University will require all general education students to take a racial and ethnicity course after years of demands from Emory’s black student group.

Professor and President of Faculty Representatives, Elena Pesavento announced that the university will be implementing a “Race and Ethnicity Requirement” for students, with learning outcomes including “how racial and ethnic antagonisms and inequality develop historically.”

“After careful consideration over the past six years, and in ongoing consultation with faculty, students, and administrators, the Emory College Faculty Senate and the Working Group on the Undergraduate Curriculum concur that Emory University has a particular obligation and opportunity to focus a diversity requirement on the crucial role of race and ethnicity in shaping our institutions, and in furthering students’ understanding of current domestic and international political and social relations,” the announcement reads.

This comes five years after “Black Students at Emory” demanded that the university create such a requirement because they were “still reeling at injustices made by the University and the lack of adequate action.” The letter demanded that the school take action to “understand and then appropriately address the mental stress incurred by Black Students at this institution on a daily basis.”
