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