Should Universities End DEI Requirements?

Should Universities End DEI Requirements?

Here’s The Scoop

In a bold move reflecting the growing national trend against the left-leaning indoctrination of our youth, the University of North Carolina (UNC) System Board of Governors has approved a groundbreaking policy reshaping the framework for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives on its campuses.

This shift away from mandated diversity officers and specific DEI goals towards a focus on equality and non-discrimination is a breath of fresh air in an academic environment often stifled by political correctness.

With 85 anti-DEI bills introduced nationwide since 2023, this policy is a significant step in the right direction. As UNC President Peter Hans pointed out, this change doesn’t mean an end to discussing diverse perspectives.

“It’s good for college students to encounter liberal ideas, to become familiar with the best forms of progressive thought our society has to offer. It’s good for college students to encounter conservative ideas, to appreciate traditional perspectives, and hear strong right-of-center arguments,” Hans stated.

The new policy has already made waves, with UNC-Chapel Hill redirecting $2.3 million from DEI spending to enhance campus safety and police, a move sure to improve the overall well-being of students.

While critics, like student Pragya Upreti, lament the policy as an erasure of history, proponents argue it will create a more balanced and inclusive environment free from divisive political agendas.

As the UNC System’s legal affairs division prepares compliance guidelines, campus leaders must report any changes in workforce and spending to ensure transparency.

This policy marks a monumental step in reclaiming our universities from the clutches of radical leftist ideologies and refocusing on true equality and non-discrimination.

    College is about book-learnin’ and its practical applications, NOT about “diversity” nor about exposing our youth to Liberal brainwashing. We need to take back our public universities and get rid of all the left-wing infiltrators that have destroyed them since the 1960s.

    This desire by a certain segment of society for everything to be subject to DEI ‘standards’ is a de facto acknowledgment that blacks can”t achieve on their own and, therefore, that academic (and employment) requirements be set aside for them. We must not acquiese to the “dumbing down” of our society in order to placate a bunch of losers and malcontents.
