“a general sense of campus discontent among non-minority students and faculty”
The people who push these efforts probably wouldn’t care if you told them they didn’t work. They are convinced that they are right and doing what is best.

Campus diversity efforts tend to worsen stereotypes and cross-racial understanding, report finds
Attempts to increase colleges’ level of racial diversity may not be having their desired effect, according to a report by the Center for Equal Opportunity.
Affirmative action policies tend to worsen racial stereotypes and harm cross-racial understanding, in violation of Supreme Court requirements, the think tank said.
“Campus Diversity and Student Discontent: The Costs of Race and Ethnic Preferences in College Admissions” was written by researcher Althea Nagai, who also wrote a 2018 CEO report on Asian Americans and affirmative action in admissions.
It seeks to answer whether years of academic race-based affirmative action programs have actually helped the demographics they claim to.
The report claims that academic disparities enabled by race preferences “continue throughout college,” reflected in the disproportionate dropout rate from STEM studies by “academically mismatched students,” according to a summary.
Campus diversity initiatives are not only correlated with “greater alienation” by black students, but also with “a general sense of campus discontent among non-minority students and faculty,” it says.
The study and its findings are particularly timely due to the Supreme Court considering whether to review Harvard’s “holistic admissions” system, which allegedly discriminates against Asian Americans and whites, a spokesperson for CEO told The College Fix.
The 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Harvard’s system last fall, finding that the uniformly lower “personal ratings” for Asian American applicants were not evidence of discrimination.
