Emory University Introducing ‘Race and Ethnicity’ Course Requirement

Emory University Introducing ‘Race and Ethnicity’ Course Requirement

“Emory University has a particular obligation and opportunity to focus a diversity requirement on the crucial role of race and ethnicity”

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.

Campus Reform reports:

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.”

There’s that word “demand” again.. Dean T. F. Grizzly would hand each of them application packetws for Fisk, Grambling, or Meherrry, then tell them to take a hike.

    Emory is so racist. They’ll be shocked when they find out the majority of their students are not coming back
    or not enrolling in the first place.

    It wasn’t too long ago that a degree from a HBCU was desirable for AA students. I wonder if that’s still true since some of them are reportedly on life support. The Beach Boys sang it: Be true to your school (rah, rah, rah, rah, sis boom bah).
    .

Emory education is worth less and less.

I went to Emory. They had asians teach calculus. I was paying thousands of dollars to see the backs of their heads while they spoke in incomprehensible gibberish while facing the blackboard.

What a waste of my money.

Plus, they were teaching Anti-American garbage in the poly sci dept.

So much money….

    Not at Emory, but my Calculus TA was German. Fortunately, I had 3 math credits from my Calculus AP exam, so I dropped the class because I couldn’t learn the language of math via another language I didn’t know.

    That’s the only class I dropped while in college.

Apparently yet another institution of higher learning that hasn’t figured out that they need students, but students don’t need them – and students sure as hell don’t need indoctrination, overt, covert, or otherwise.

Goodness. Mental stress at college? Who knew?

    It’s almost like they don’t understand that mental stress is in many ways the point of university.

Emory is not alone in imposing upon students as a required course left wing indoctrination.
Parents should closely look at the college catalogue before allowing their kids to attend such an institution. The more financially bankrupt colleges and universities the healthier the country.

Emory University is in Atlanta, Georgia. Not exactly a bastion of rational thought and academic tolerance.

It’s a good school, but not a great school. I’d advise others to go somewhere else with your hard-earned education Dollars.
