Could the UNC System Do Without Diversity Offices?

George Leef

In this week's Pope Center Clarion Call, Duke Cheston looks at the numerous diversity offices throughout the UNC System. Do they accomplish anything important? He concludes that they don't and suggests that they ought to be eliminated to help close the state's budget gap. He makes a good case. Beating the drums for the supposed wonders of a "diverse" campus was always a waste and we can't afford to keep blowing limited tax dollars on something so unnecessary. Everyone is unique. College campuses would still be highly diverse if we stopped trying to increase the percentages of students who have certain ancestries and stopped prattling on about how beneficial it is to do that.
