De-Fund The UC Reason #2

A very smart lady by the name of HEATHER MAC DONALD looked into some of the absurdities passing for higher education at California's laughing-stock University system.


UC San Diego is adding diversity fat even as it snuffs out substantive academic programs. In March, the Academic Senate decided that the school would no longer offer a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering; it also eliminated a master’s program in comparative literature and courses in French, German, Spanish, and English literature.
Not only have diversity sinecures been protected from budget cuts, their numbers are actually growing. The University of California at San Diego, for example, is creating a new full-time “vice chancellor for equity, diversity, and inclusion.” This position would augment UC San Diego’s already massive diversity apparatus, which includes the Chancellor’s Diversity Office, the associate vice chancellor for faculty equity, the assistant vice chancellor for diversity, the faculty equity advisors, the graduate diversity coordinators, the staff diversity liaison, the undergraduate student diversity liaison, the graduate student diversity liaison, the chief diversity officer, the director of development for diversity initiatives, the Office of Academic Diversity and Equal Opportunity, the Committee on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues, the Committee on the Status of Women, the Campus Council on Climate, Culture and Inclusion, the Diversity Council, and the directors of the Cross-Cultural Center, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, and the Women’s Center.
This is what California taxes is funding. You think this is a good investment? You think this is going to help us compete? They are systematically dismantling a what used to be a top-notch university system. These idiots running the system are destroying our future with the race to the bottom they are currently engaged in. Skin color or who you like to have sex with is not a valid criteria for anything, least of all entrance to a university or a position working there!

Fools, we have FOOLs running our universities. YOU IDIOTS! GET A CLUE. MORONS!
