Emory U. Hiring Another Diversity Official Despite Possible $84 Million Loss From Coronavirus

Emory U. Hiring Another Diversity Official Despite Possible $84 Million Loss From Coronavirus

“the university recently launched a search for a Director of Diversity and Inclusion Education and Outreach”

Nothing stands in the way of the progressive agenda, even a pandemic that causes massive financial losses.

The College Fix reports:

Emory projects an $84 million hit from COVID. It’s hiring yet another diversity and inclusion official.

Emory University refuses to shortchange diversity and inclusion even as the private Georgia institution’s projected losses attributed to COVID-19 spiral.

New President Greg Fenves, who was plagued by scandals at the University of Texas–Austin, told the community in a wide-ranging Thursday update that Emory was creating yet another diversity and inclusion position, a director of education and outreach.

It already has a chief diversity officer, and its diversity webpage names four offices besides the Office of Equity and Inclusion with diversity-and-inclusion missions.

Emory’s estimate of the budget hit it will take from lost revenue and expenses related to the novel coronavirus has nearly doubled since April, when it projected $45 million in net revenue losses through Aug. 31. The new estimate, Fenves told The Emory Wheel: $84 million.

Faculty earning $75,000 and up will take a 5 percent pay cut, and capital projects have been suspended for the time being. The new president said further cuts were certain if student enrollment didn’t pick back up.

The diversity bureaucracy is still on the gravy train, however, as Fenves made clear in his Thursday update:

In recent years, new positions have been created to strengthen Emory’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. But, still, more education and guidance are needed. To this end, the university recently launched a search for a Director of Diversity and Inclusion Education and Outreach who will be charged with:

Developing educational programming and training for staff, faculty, and leadership on issues related to diversity and bias prevention;
Serving as a strategic thought leader who builds, maintains, and shares resources (tools, training opportunities, etc.) across campus; and
Leading educational campaigns and platforms, such as symposia and colloquiums, that extend the venues and targets of educational outreach.
