Outrageous Mizzou Now Requiring 'Diversity Intensive' Courses to Graduate
Following last year's much-publicized student protests, the University of Missouri announced Wednesday that undergraduates will have to complete three credit hours of "diversity intensive" courses in order to graduate.
The required College of Arts and Science courses will focus on “understanding differing social groups” and “will explore at least one form of social inequality, broadly defined.”
“It is important to note that this is not something that we whipped up in response to the events of last fall or the student protests,” said Elisa Glick, an associate professor of English and Women’s and Gender Studies.
“We see this requirement as a starting point for students to develop a more nuanced and diverse educational experience.”
The diversity initiative will be overseen by Kevin McDonald, who was appointed Wednesday to serve as the university’s first Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer.
McDonald will reportedly receive a starting salary of $235,000.
