Our friends Mike Gonzalez and Jay Greene of The Heritage Foundation have just published an astonishing study measuring how many Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) “instructors” there are at major public state universities.
The worst state was Virginia with 6.5 DEI personnel for every 100 faculty members. The University of Virginia has 94(!) diversity officers on the payroll that the researchers could identify. There are probably many more than that.
George Mason University with almost eight diversity personnel for every 100 teachers is the grand champion of wasting money on DEI.
Other states with major DEI programs are shown below:
Rather than raise tuition next year, why don’t these states get rid of the DEI programs that drain resources from classrooms and instructions?
