Washington State U. Creates Five New Diversity Positions Despite Budget Troubles

The progressive agenda trumps everything. Small business owners are still struggling to pay their bills but this taxpayer funded school is hiring diversity administrators.

The College Fix reports:

Despite budget crunch, Washington State U. creates five new diversity positions

On Monday, Washington State University announced the creation of five new faculty positions which supposedly are “integral” to the school’s commitment to diversity and equity.

The new hires officially will be part of the WSU Racism and Social Inequality in the Americas cluster hire program, according to WSU Insider. The university says the positions “address the urgent need” for academics who specialize in those areas.

Provost Elizabeth Chilton said “The past year, in particular, exposed the need for greater research and scholarship aimed at dismantling systemic racism, and we’re thrilled to recruit faculty who will broaden and deepen our commitment to racial equality in a wide array of disciplines and help us transform the institution.”

Associate Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence Lisa Guerrero added that the positions are an “important step in expanding our capacity to develop scholarship in racism and social equality.”

The positions include:

— African Diasporas in the Americas (Department of History)

— Indigenous Knowledge, Data Sovereignty, and Decolonization (Digital Technology and Culture Program and WSU Tri-Cities)

— Music of Black Americans/Music and Social Justice (School of Music)

— Racialized Justice in America (Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology)

— Social and Environmental Justice (School of Design and Construction)

The cluster hires will continue through 2023.

The creation of the positions comes amid budget reduction recommendations announced by the university back in July. The university was “assigned” a reduction of $37.2 million by the state, and WSU “asked all units throughout the system” to consider permanent 10 percent budget cuts.

More proof that a degree in economics or finance from a government university is of dubious value.

My understanding is a diaspora people maintain a connection to its homeland. African-Americans descended from pre-1965 stock have virtually no connection to the Subsahara. In fact, the migration rate from the US to the Subsahara is close to nonexistent.

The only position of the five with some merit is the one in the School of Music. African-Americans have contributed considerably to our musical heritage.

Before rap I knew almost nothing about bitches and hos.

You would think that at some point that someone would point out that the culture that they are pushing is the exact same culture that continues on the path to failure.
