The Most Diversity Obsessed University in America?

The diversity mania rages at most colleges and universities in America, but Brown University might be the “leader” in this regard. While officials at other institutions say the right things and make the right gestures to appease the diversity deities, at Brown they really mean it!

In today’s Pope Center Clarion Call, John Rosenberg examines the school’s recent record and concludes that Brown has “doubled down” on diversity.

Exhibit A in the piece is the school’s “bold promise” to double its percentage of faculty members from “underrepresented” groups by 2025. But exactly why would that be good?

Rosenberg points to Brown’s blathery document on “inclusive excellence” which states that “diverse” scholars are essential if the school is to remain productive, creative, and competitive.

Of course, such platitudes sound pleasing to leftist ears, but Rosenberg observes that they’re merely assertions that are never backed up by any evidence or reasoning.

“Exactly what the ‘benefits of diversity’ are and why only new diverse scholars are brilliant, creative, etc. is never explained,” he writes…

    Well, at least they won’t need to double the number of ratbags.

    This is a difficult task. How do you double the present number of rational faculty members if that number is zero. Two times zero is still zero!

      The New Math will be a boon to these minor hiccups.

    It always comes down to the fundamental leftist dictum: social justice warriors always lie.
