“joined Dalton in July 2019 from Harvard University, where he worked in the president’s office as a strategist and advisor on diversity”
Now the school’s diversity director is out. It’s not clear if he quit or was fired.
The New York Post reports:
Head of diversity at Dalton School leaving ‘in pursuit of other opportunities’
The head of diversity at the tony Dalton School — the Upper East Side bastion of privilege that’s been rocked by controversy recently over its heavy-handed “anti-racist” ideology — is out, school officials said.
Domonic Rollins, the school’s director of DEI (“Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”) is leaving “in pursuit of other opportunities,” the school said Friday.
Rollins joined Dalton in July 2019 from Harvard University, where he worked in the president’s office as a strategist and advisor on diversity, inclusion and belonging, and as senior diversity and inclusion officer at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.
The last few months of Rollins’ tenure were marked by aggressive new moves on the part of Dalton’s headmaster Jim Best to ensure the school would be more “anti-racist.”
But simmering conflicts over the issue of anti-racism at Dalton — which counts Anderson Cooper, Christian Slater and Claire Danes as alumni — erupted publicly in December when the school’s administration and faculty issued eight pages of “proposals” to overhaul the staffing, curriculum and treatment of Black students.
Parents and alumni at the school fired off a scathing open letter decrying the school’s new race-obsessed agenda last month.

When you’re too woke for Dalton, you’ve lost touch w/reality. Good Q in here though about why they fired the diversity guy (who’s Black) and not the head of school (who’s white). Who’s really responsible for the insanity these schools are pushing? https://t.co/edCRtOUDmi
