New Report Says Boise State University is Being Overrun by Social Justice Ideology

New Report Says Boise State University is Being Overrun by Social Justice Ideology

“infiltrated the highest level of the BSU administration”

The left does not seek to coexist within the system. It wants to take over and dominate the system. That’s what appears to be happening here.

The College Fix reports:

Boise State University overrun by social justice ideology, according to scholars’ new report

Social justice has fully permeated academics at Boise State University, according to a new research report that suggests such a situation on campus “divides the world into aggrieved minorities and oppressive majorities.”

Scholars Scott Yenor and Anna Miller, in their December 2020 report “Social justice ideology in Idaho higher education,” break down how social justice proponents have “infiltrated the highest level of the BSU administration” and are steadily transforming the public institution from within.

“BSU is adding to its social justice mission every year,” the 36-page report states. “Social justice education at BSU is no longer in its infancy. It is heading toward maturity, spreading into hiring, policies, curriculum, and student life.”

The report, jointly sponsored by two center-right think tanks, the Idaho Freedom Foundation and the Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life, states that:

· Administrators at BSU have repeatedly stated their commitment to developing a mature apparatus pushing social justice activism.

· BSU has hired several administrators to push such initiatives since beginning its intentions to transform the university in Summer 2017.

· Administrators have adopted policies in hiring and student experience to further the social justice cause and have announced a new emphasis on “inclusion and equity” throughout its colleges.

· Social justice education has a significant presence in the General Education requirements at BSU.

· Social justice ideology plays a significant part in at least 14 departments at BSU.

· The Residence Hall experience is infused with social justice ideology, as is the Writing Center.

And beyond BSU they will corrupt Boise and then Idaho politic, Boise already has a wacko leftist mayor. We are soon-to-be California political refugees relocating to ID because all our kids and grandkids have moved there (they were priced out of staying in California where they were born and raised). My son and I are already supporting the IFF, but it seems hopeless. Republicans are not willing to take on the leftist education establishment. I’m age 63, I guess it will be a race between the leftist takeover and my demise. But my kids and grandkids are screwed.

Boise State is, indeed, a hot mess, and I applaud efforts by any organization to rein them in. But IFF is in no way “center” right; they toy with the lunatic fringe.

    I’m not sure what ‘”center” right’ means to you. IME it describes establishment Republicans willing to compromise with the democrats on the never-ending march to government control of everything, with the Rs just barely managing to slow things down a bit while not spending quite as much money along the way. No thanks. Do you have any recommendations other than IFF that I should look into?

      Honestly, I think IFF plays an important role and they do some good things; I simply (strongly) disagree with the moniker “center right.” IFF is very right, closer to the lunatic fringe. They willing participate is some very stupid stunts and have encouraged a few of our very far right legislators to take positions that wind up making them (and, by extension, conservative voters) look very stupid (look up the child custody law kerfuffle of a couple of years ago.) With all of the inflow from California and Seattle, all of Boise is a mess; we don’t need IFF lending credence to the left’s criticisms.
