Think of all the scholarships that could be funded with that kind of cash.

University recieves $625K grant for DEI

The University of Richmond (UR) in Virginia recently received a 625K grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to “study barriers to student inclusivity.”

The grant is an Inclusive Excellence 3 (IE3) 6-year program meant to discover barriers to belonging, test different ways to intervene with said barriers, and promote inclusivity by giving staff resources, according to the UR Newsroom announcement.

IE3 aims “to create a learning community of college and university faculty, staff, students, and administrators who are engaged in the continuing process of increasing their institution’s capacity for inclusion and will commit to learning through reflection, sharing what is being learned, listening to feedback, and supporting other members of the community,” according to its website.

Colleges throughout the U.S are pushing for diversity, equity, and inclusion on their campuses, as Campus Reform has reported.

UR, for example, is just one of 104 colleges and universities receiving funding for the IE3 program, according to HHMI.

In 2021, HHMI claimed to commit 2 billion dollars to increase racial, ethnic and gender diversity in science. HHMI plans to do this by “placing equity at the center of policies and practices in research, classroom, and administrative settings.”

Dr. Angie Hilliker, an associate professor of Biology at UR, will head the project with 10 other faculty members.

Virtue signaling is VERY expensive.

What would Hughes himself thought of this nonsense?

The main barrier is being effing stupid. Wow, I solved it and it didn’t cost them a dime. Where should I submit an invoice?

Wasn’t Hughes a huge germophobe? And I phobia. And there’s a medical institute in his name? Oy.

Also, the main barriers to “inclusivity” are race hucksters and grievance mongers, who keep the grift alive.

A return to the end of the 80s, but throwing Sharpton and Jackson in prison for grievance mongering, would mostly solve our problems, I think.
