Portland State University Requiring ‘Race and Ethnic Studies’ to Graduate

Portland State University Requiring ‘Race and Ethnic Studies’ to Graduate

[t]he new requirement…ensures students are equipped with an understanding of how historically rooted and ongoing racism affects institutions in Oregon, the U.S. and the world.”

Racism is everywhere, you guys. So weird how progressives have to force their pet projects on everyone. They know no one would take their preachy classes. From Campus Reform:

Portland State University (PSU) is introducing a new required course category into the 2022-23 course catalog: the “Race and Ethnic Studies requirement (RESR).”

Courses that satisfy the RESR address topics such as imperialism and colonialism.

“Introduction to Black Studies,” “Black Feminism/Womanism,” “Chicanx Labor History,” “Prejudice, Privilege, and Power,” and “Queer Families” are just some of the courses students can choose from to meet the Race and Ethnic Studies requirement.

PSU states that “[t]he new requirement…ensures students are equipped with an understanding of how historically rooted and ongoing racism affects institutions in Oregon, the U.S. and the world.”

PSU course details state that students with less than 90 college credits joining PSU “will satisfy the requirement by completing two RESR designated courses (a minimum of 3 credits each) with a central focus on race, ethnicity and systemic oppression.”

PSU is known for its long-standing commitment to the social justice movement. The university prides itself on the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (‘DEI’) on campus.

PSU’s diversity statement, for example, emphasizes that DEI “is the essential framework” of who they are and what they strive to achieve “as an institution and community.”
