University of Michigan Wastes Fortune on Diversity Officers

Even ostensibly private schools like those comprising the Ivy League float luxuriantly on a warm sea of coercive financing compliments of Big Government. Taxpayers pay even more to state schools like the University of Michigan. One thing they get for the money is plenty of Cultural Marxism, which is inflicted at the expense of the hated core population by overpaid apparatchiks known as “diversity officers”:

UMich is currently paying $10.6 million each year for its 82 “diversity officers,” MLive reported. Further scholarships and a new $10 million multicultural center are all part of a five-year strategic plan, launched in 2016 to diversify the campus.

According to UM-Flint professor of finance Mark Perry,

“For that amount of money, more than 700 students could receive full in-state tuition.”

No doubt the campus is already plenty diverse, thanks in part to Affirmative Action admission preferences. But it won’t be diverse enough until the last heterosexual white male has been excluded in the name of inclusion.

Prior to 2003, there was no Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion staff at University of Michigan. Now there are 76 of these pernicious barnacles at the main Ann Arbor campus. They are paid handsomely to impose systematic discrimination against regular Americans. Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion & Chief Diversity Officer Robert Sellers rakes in a staggering $407,653 per year.

U of M is not alone. Columbia University has spent $185 on faculty diversity since 2005. Unsurprisingly, a 2018 internal report found that the school still isn’t diverse enough. Too much is never enough for progressives when it comes to marginalizing the core population.

Hat tip: Legal Insurrection.
