Will the Diversity Mania Ever End?

George Leef

Maybe, but it's still growing like mad. Consider John Rosenberg's new essay on Minding the Campus, on the efforts college administrators are making to solve the supposed problem of insufficient diversity in study-abroad programs. It's not enough to diversify the student body by picking some students on the basis of their ancestry; if any aspect of college life doesn't "model diversity" then something must be done. Too few black students think that study-abroad programs are worthwhile and that's a problem that must be addressed. All those Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officers need something to do. They scour the college landscape hunting for "inequities" like this. What next?  The chess club?
