Illinois State U. Spending $4.5 Million on ‘Faculty Diversity Enhancement’ Program

“This effort is aimed at boosting diversity, equity, and inclusion at ISU.”

Think of how many students could attend this school tuition free for this kind of money. They don’t care. This is their real priority.

University spends $4.5 million on ‘Faculty Diversity Enhancement Program’

Illinois State University (ISU) recently announced that it will be spending $4.5 million to create a Faculty Diversity Enhancement Program.

The seven-year program includes fives years dedicated to new faculty recruitment, all supported by “university general revenue funds, funds from the Office of the Provost, and matching funds from departments, schools, and colleges,” ISU states on its website.

This effort is aimed at boosting diversity, equity, and inclusion at ISU. Accordingly, the university states that “[f]aculty who are a part of this program will advance teaching, scholarly, and creative productivity” in numerous fields, which include “driving social change” and “diversifying disciplinary fields.”

Faculty participating in the initiative “will be eligible to receive a maximum of $20,000 per year for a total of three years through the initiative,” according to the university.

Comments

Someone needs to be a watchdog on the “faculty recruitment” part of this initiative, in which they obviously intend to indulge in racist discrimination in hiring new faculty.

    Definitely systemic racism at work in our institutions. Just not the kind that the media whines about constantly, but this garbage. It’s supposedly against the law — yet it goes on all around us, all the time
