Bentley University Offering Nation’s First Bachelor’s Degree in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

I predicted this was coming years ago. The left started pushing their agenda in higher education like an invasive species, and eventually it will replace the host in many places.

The College Fix reports:

University debuts nation’s first bachelor’s degree in diversity, equity and inclusion

Bentley University has claimed the title of becoming the first school in the United States to offer a bachelor’s degree in diversity, equity and inclusion.

This fall, students will have the option to pursue a four-year degree to prepare them for careers such as a diversity and inclusion specialist, human resources DEI expert or community organizer.

Bentley is a small, private liberal arts college in Waltham, Massachusetts. It charges $55,000 a year for tuition and fees and is known for its business-minded majors.

The new major was developed because “students have an interest in careers that make a positive impact on society and employers have an interest in hiring graduates who can fill these diversity, equity and inclusion roles,” said Helen Henrichs, the university’s spokesperson, in an email to The College Fix.

There are two DEI bachelor degree pathways at Bentley.

One is a Bachelor of Science, which emphasizes diversity, equity and inclusion in organizational strategy, or a Bachelor of Arts, which focuses on critical and theoretical approaches to social justice, Henrichs said.

“Both options will pair core business courses, such as ‘Managing Diversity in the Workplace’ and ‘Gender and the Law,’ and core arts and sciences courses, such as ‘Cross-Cultural Communication’ and ‘Race and Racism in U.S. History,’ with electives from multiple areas,” she said.

“Students will have the flexibility to choose classes that align with their interests.”

Now our graduates can be totally underprepared with life skills at our most basic accreditation level.

Unprepared with life skills…maybe…but they will be saddled with $220K in college debt. a useless degree, and four years of their lives they’ll never get back.

Before College Fix, this was covered in The Cornell Review: https://www.thecornellreview.org/can-you-have-a-career-after-majoring-in-wokeness/

I wonder how many white kids will pursue a Diversity degree? Aren’t these no heavy lifting/shake down positions in Corporate America reserved for minority applicants only?
