“they consist mostly of non-faculty positions in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion”
Why does college need to be free? Schools obviously have money to burn. Imagine how many students could attend Ohio State for $10 million a year.
The College Fix reports:
Ohio State employs more than 100 diversity workers, costing $10 million-plus per year
Ohio State University currently employs more than 100 workers whose jobs are dedicated to diversity and inclusion, according to information recently compiled using the most recent salary reports for the public university.
The research found that the salary and benefits costs come in at over $10 million dollars annually, according to Professor Mark Perry of the University of Michigan-Flint, who conducted the research.
According to Perry, that annual cost is enough to cover the tuition of approximately 882 in-state students or 303 out-of-state students.
“I have long been a critic of ‘administrative bloat’ in higher education, and the explosion of diversity officers is just one example of that bloat,” said Perry, a professor of finance, business and economics.
Of the 100-plus employees, they consist mostly of non-faculty positions in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, such as provosts, directors, assistant directors, managers, equity investigators, administrative assistants, and “academic encouragers.”
