Diversity and Inclusion at the UC System
As California falls further into debt, and taxes rise, questions are being asked about the costs, both to taxpayers and to academic programs, of expanding already expensive and elaborate "diversity and inclusion" bureaucracies at the UC Campuses.
While student fees have risen again, costs are escalating, and academic programs are being cut or eliminated.
There are complaints by college professors that the universities are losing professors to institutions in other states in such fields as cancer research, while tacking on millions in expenses to increase the number of departments and personnel at each UC Campus (and Cal State) campus that encourages "Diversity."
The UC System has long been the champion of diversity, and goes out of its way to admit under-qualified minorities. No one thinks diversity is lacking on the campuses here.
Following the 2016 Election, it became obvious, particularly at the Berkeley Campus, that any opinions or statements that disagreed with those of the of the Leftists students on campus would not be tolerated.
