“The training covered various topics, including the exploration of power, the definition of privilege, and different types of oppression.”
This is required left wing indoctrination. Students will learn the ways of the left or they won’t learn anything at all.

EXCLUSIVE: MIT mandates diversity training; one student calls it ‘indoctrination’
Massachusetts Institute of Technology sent an email to students informing them that if they didn’t complete diversity, equity, and inclusion training, they would be unable to register for spring classes.
In the email, a copy of which Campus Reform obtained, MIT outlined “two required trainings,” the first one being “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” and the second being “sexual assault prevention ongoing: healthy relationships.”
“You will have a registration hold placed on your account and will be unable to register for IAP and/or spring 2021 classes if you do not complete both trainings by the Nov. 2 deadline,” the email reads.
“From my perspective, this is a gross over-reach of the school’s power,” one MIT student, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution, told Campus Reform.
The student argued that MIT was making “classes contingent upon indoctrination.”
MIT cited a 2015 push by the Black Student Union as the catalyst for the change, saying that since then, “students rated MIT as more caring, safe, and friendly.”
The training covered various topics, including the exploration of power, the definition of privilege, and different types of oppression.
The first section of the required training, titled, “exploring power,” alleged “power imbalances” in civilizations and institutions around the world: “Because of this inequitable access to power, history has been told through the lens of those in charge, without allowing the stories of the disempowered to be recognized.”
