New Diversity Plan at Michigan State Would Require Two Equity and Inclusion Courses to Graduate

The left’s agenda just keeps inching its way into the curriculum and eventually will supplant it.

The College Fix reports:

New MSU diversity plan would require two equity and inclusion courses to graduate

Michigan State University recently published a 77-page diversity, equity and inclusion framework that lists dozens of goals to infuse the progressive ideology into every aspect of campus life, from curriculum to hiring practices to funding priorities.

Among the recommendations is to implement “a minimum of two DEI-related requirements in the formal curriculum for undergraduate students,” the document states.

Another stated goal is to establish a “curriculum task force … to identify ways to incorporate DEI within university-wide undergraduate requirements.”

The framework also recommends adding a “required component to New Student Orientation” focused on diversity, equity and inclusion.

To address the graduation gap, the public university plans to offer more one-credit courses and what it calls “inclusive learning communities.”

The framework also recommends the establishment of an “institutional social justice research fund” for racial equity and justice studies, as well as part of the university’s budget specifically earmarked for diversity, equity and inclusion research.

The plan also calls for a prioritization of hiring minority and underrepresented faculty and staff and requiring search committees to undergo and unconscious bias training.

It also seeks the creation of professorships that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.

To address faculty who experience incidents of unfair treatment, discriminatory practices, and microaggressions, the framework recommends establishing some sort of task force to determine and implement “restorative practices to allow those who have been harmed by behaviors and acts of bias to experience healing and redress.”

More white-hating, male-hating quota-hires. Each must be a) black, b) female, c) unattractive, d) have a doctorate in a soft, or nonsense, field, and e) have a hyphenated name.

Optional: man-glasses, un-natural hair color(s), piercings, and a voice on which one could strike kitchen matches.

/how am I doing?

just think, you are required to actually pay to attend courses like that. No wonder the cost of college is so out of control these days.

This is what happens when you hire “Diversity” administrators. They turn into political commissars who politicize the entire institution.

These courses are the academic version of “verdict first, trial later (if ever).” In this version conclusions come first, investigation later (if ever).

Of course they must be mandated: why else would anyone take them?
