Ohio State Employs Over 100 Diversity Workers Costing $10 Million a Year

“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.”

Fake jobs for those who in previous times would be be clerks or laborers in industry. Total welfare jobs.

    At those salaries, it’s not welfare it’s pure “wealth-fare”. Transferring money into the hands of true believers in big brother.

What the heck is an “Academic Encourager”?

    They used to be called “parents”. High school and below: “You bring home a good report card, or, you are grounded so you stay home and study. Oh, and, bring me your phone, and, put your computer int the family room.”

    College: “You bring home good marks, or we cut off tuition and you go get a job.”

Exhibit A in why college costs have increased at a greater percentage than medical costs.

Incapable of succeeding in the DPS (dreaded private sector).

Virtue signaling is VERY expensive.

The fact that Ohio State is spending $100 million a year to improve the academic progress of Black students suggests that those Black students should be doing very well. Is that the case?

    Or, it indicates that no matter what you spend, there’s not much to be done with most of them; they are just taking up space to fill the quotas.

Go digest some of Critical Drinker’s content over the past year.

Once I saw how deep this went my jaw dropped.

We all knew the movie/TV industry was bat shit crazy, but seeing how far it went into the comic book and video game industry AND how deep it actually went in film is disturbing.

DC comics death spiral could not be more over the top if it were written by Ayn Rand.

So that is like two positions per student athlete that they likely oversee.
