Higher education is absolutely obsessed with diversity. Schools boast about their commitment to it all the time but this is a bit much.

The idea here is that the school is raising money to offer students instead of student loans. It’s ‘free money’ for students who qualify. At least they’re not demanding the cash from taxpayers.
