Default With revenue plunging, Mizzou to spend $1.1 million on diversity audit

"Thanks for attending this board meeting. The school is in trouble. We're broke, donors are fleeing, and the entire country is making fun of us for being politically correct pussies. Any ideas on what to do?"

"Yeah, let's spend millions more, create additional safe spaces, hire "diversity officers," and make our school an even bigger vagina."

Life would be so boring and unfunny without the left.

The University of Missouri, which was rocked by race protests last year that toppled its two leaders, caused its biggest donors to retreat and dampened interest among prospective students, will spend more than $1 million to audit its diversity policies.

In addition to the $1.1 million audit, the UM System also plans to spend $2 million on other diversity initiatives, including the hiring of a chief diversity officer and systemwide task force
, the Missourian reported earlier this week.

IBIS Consulting Group will conduct the comprehensive audit, interviewing students, professors and staff on all four campuses in the UM System, according to a news release.

“This assessment will help us understand where we stand in comparison to our peer institutions and best practices in higher education,” said Michael Middleton, the interim president, who assumed the position in November after the protests forced the resignation of Tim Wolfe.

In late April, Heat Street requested a comprehensive breakdown of Mizzou’s new expenditures on diversity, equity and inclusion, but it has not yet received a response, despite numerous follow-ups.

Several Mizzou students told Heat Street that while a handful of racist incidents on campus in recent years disturbed them, they do not believe there’s a systemic problem.

Other student activists said the administration had been willing to work with students to address racism, adding that the protestors last fall—which included a seven-day hunger strike by graduate student Jonathan Butler—did more harm than good. They added that the protests not only disrupted normal campus operations, including the cancelation of classes, but also hindered longtime collaboration between student organizations and university officials to improve diversity and create opportunities for minority students.

While I've never bought into the notion that you can't make this stuff up. You obviously can. But most often, there's really no need.

The big donors didn't leave because of diversity, but lack of leadership by those who knuckled under to the PC crowd.

As an Alumni myself, I am embarrassed and ashamed. Not for the lack of diversity by t the lack of courage and standards which need to be exhibited by the Board of directors when the University is in crisis. Honesty and courage used to be considered noble qualities. I have yet to see how such qualities conflict with a diverse population with multiple political and moral values.

Any sane person on the Missou campus can see there is no problem with diversity. Ethnic and racial. Except for the acceptance of various political thought. Conservative in particular.
