Oregon State U. Brags About Diversity Award as its National Ranking Drops

Oregon State U. Brags About Diversity Award as its National Ranking Drops

“OSU’s ranking was eight spots lower from the previous year, when in 2020 the school appeared as #153 on U.S. News’ list.”

This makes perfect sense. Higher education places a greater value on diversity than almost anything else.

Campus Reform reports:

Oregon State boasts about diversity award as its US News ranking drops another 8 spots

Oregon State University boasted about a national diversity and inclusion award concurrent to the school continuing to slide in national rankings.

The school released a statement on October 4 announcing that it had joined 100 other schools in receiving the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award. OSU Interim President Rebecca “Becky” Johnson is quoted as saying the award reflects the institution’s commitment to “advancing diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the university.”

Around three weeks earlier, on September 13, U.S. News & World Report announced its 2022 Best National Universities Rankings, which showed OSU occupying the #162 position.

OSU’s ranking was eight spots lower from the previous year, when in 2020 the school appeared as #153 on U.S. News’ list.

In 2018 and 2019, the university ranked #140 and #139, respectively.

Around the same time period, OSU has actively promoted social justice among its student body.

As Campus Reform previously reported in the last three years, the school has a special therapist for African-American students and a “Food and Culture in Social Justice” certificate program.

Likewise, the school hired in 2017 an administrator charged with pushing “diversity education” in residence spaces.

Congratulations. Or something…

Well they have done well with high school dropouts.

Linus Pauling dropped out of HS because it was boring, worked a few years in a machine shop, then went to Oregon State and essentially took every science course they had, about 10 at a time. He was then admitted to the PhD program at Caltech, which he completed, then Caltech made him a faculty member. Then Pauling won his first Nobel Prize, in Chemistry.

Then after that his HS decided to award him his HS diploma. But it was Oregon State that took this kid, ignored everything except his ability, and gave him what he needed. It’s a great American success story.

I wish I could say I expected this new push to go half as well. Now they’ll probably discourage square-peg brilliant kids if they aren’t the right race or gender, or make them take a bunch of SJW garbage.

Looks like diversity and inclusion are sinking the schools ship.
