Cal State-East Bay Offers Faculty up to $1,200 Stipend to Take Anti-Racism Professional Development Courses
“Faculty at the university, according to the brochure, have a ‘sacred’ duty to learn about these topics.”
Progressive ideas are so popular that people have to be paid to embrace them.

University offers $1,200 stipends to learn how ‘whiteness is normalized’ and how it can be ‘eradicated’
California State University East Bay faculty members can earn $1,200 if they take professional development courses on anti-racism this summer and continue to work on their projects through the school year.
The stipends go to professors and instructors who attend the “Anti-Racist Liberatory Pedagogy Academy” this July.
The brochure from Professor G.T. Reyes said that CRT IS “a race-conscious framework that examines the ways that whiteness is normalized in our country and in our University.”
“Critical Race Theory takes an intersectional approach to interrogating race and racism in the United States,” the info sheet also said. Professor Reyes did not respond to a June 23 email that asked for a definition of “whiteness” and how many professors were enrolled.
Participants will confront the question of how they can “also aim towards liberatory conditions where whiteness has been eradicated.”
“Participants will receive a $600 participant stipend for completion of the summer portion and a second $600 stipend for the completion of the follow up work through the Spring semester,” Professor Michael Lee wrote in a May promotional email reviewed by The College Fix.
Lee, a committee member for the seminar, did not respond to two emails sent in the past four weeks asking for explanation on “whiteness” and for further information.
Participants will learn to incorporate anti-racism into their classes
Attendees at the workshops will learn how to “incorporate anti-racist and culturally responsive components and approaches” into at least one syllabus for the fall semester.
Professors will develop their courses in a way “designed to meet anti-racism objectives and promote inclusive and equitable learning.”
Faculty at the university, according to the brochure, have a “sacred” duty to learn about these topics.
