Ohio State University Task Force on Racism and Racial Inequities wants School to Apply DEI Policies Into Everything

“A commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion has no finish line”

This is the goal of the campus left all over the country. Expect this to become the norm at many other schools.

The College Fix reports:

Ohio State University looks to embed DEI into every aspect of campus life

An Ohio State University Task Force on Racism and Racial Inequities report calls for the university to “become a leader in transforming society through the advancement of equity, diversity and inclusion.”

“A commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion has no finish line,” the 16-page report’s executive summary stated.

But a campus DEI leader refused a request from The College Fix this month to say how many of the diversity, equity and inclusion goals it has implemented since the report was published in April.

The College Fix reached out three times via email to Sara Childers, Ohio State’s director of strategic diversity planning, training and assessment in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, to ask what has been so far done to act on the goals included in the plan. Childers responded September 9 that her team is unable to comment at this time.

The report is organized into 15 “Grand Challenges,” articulating DEI goals in areas including admissions and enrollment, teaching methods and curriculum, and recruitment and retention of staff from minority groups.

“Greater attention needs to be placed on developing a comprehensive plan to recruit, hire, retain, advance and recognize the contributions of faculty of color, women and other underrepresented groups,” the report stated.

The task force also called on the university to restructure its budget to buy more products from minority-owned companies. It recommends “each unit with purchasing authority [should] provide, as a component of its annual diversity plan, a plan and timeline to establish goals that substantially increase its external purchasing from minority vendors.”

The report also seeks to instill DEI in the curriculum, recommending OSU ”charge an ad hoc group with establishing a baseline core curriculum that reflects minimum DEI education requirements for students and employees.”

Every activity group in the Eastern Bloc was assigned its own Political Officer, who attended all meetings, reported backsliding, and traveled with the group whenever it traveled, especially outside the Bloc.
EVERY SINGLE ONE. A permanent Karen.
