High-priced diversity bureaucrats aren’t improving diversity on campus, study finds

Chief diversity officers at major educational institutions are known for their enormous salaries. One eye-opening example is the University of North Carolina’s CDO, who earns substantially more than the governor.

Colleges might want to revisit these salaries in light of new research that finds no “significant statistical evidence” that CDOs do anything to improve “preexisting growth” in the academic hiring of “underrepresented” racial and ethnic groups on campus.
