California university works to reduce number of white people on campus
TRISTAN SMITH - LAFAYETTE COLLEGE

<More Surprise Here>

In keeping with the diversity and inclusion movement sweeping campuses across the country, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo recently released a 30-page report outlining plans to "improve diversity" via a series of initiatives. One goal is to increase the number of people of color on campus beyond the increases that have already occurred over the past few years, as "applications from underrepresented minority students doubled between 2008 and 2018."

"In 2011, the campus was 63 percent Caucasian," the May 2 report informs readers, "in fall of 2017, it was less than 55 percent but there is still much work to do."

The public research institution states it wishes to get those numbers more in line with the state's percentage of white people, which recent polls hold at 39.7 percent of the population. "To further advance its goals of reflecting the demographics of California and creating a more diverse and inclusive campus community, Cal Poly administration has developed the following Diversity Action Initiatives document," the report states. In it, administration details a multi-year effort with dozens of intitiatives, including ones to further lower the percentage of white students on campus and increase the number of faculty of color.

For students, the school plans on recruiting applicants more heavily based on race. For instance, the school has recently implemented several new scholarships "aimed at recruiting more African-American and other underrepresented minorities." It's also working to recruit low-income and first-generation students by partnering with high schools that enroll a high percentage of these students, according to the report.

Cal Poly SLO has eliminated applicants' ability to apply to the school in Early Decision since the process, according to the report, "disadvantaged low-income students." All applicants, regardless of their level of interest in the school, are viewed in one big pool in regular decision admissions. And the college announced its intention of forcibly increasing diversity in "traditionally male-dominated majors" such as STEM and Architecture and Environmental Design, according to the document.

For faculty, the university states diversity will be a criterion considered in cluster hiring faculty "every other year." And the university has received $150,000 from the Cal State University system "for a cluster hire of up to 10 faculty positions that focus on diversity and inclusion in a variety of scholarly areas throughout the university's six colleges."

This fall campus leaders will "require a diversity statement from candidates for all faculty and staff searches," the report states. It adds that search committees will now be made up of diverse membership and Academic Affairs has "set [an] expectation that search committees will be based on best practices regarding diversity."

Meanwhile, many initiatives remain in the offing.

Typical California 'logic' - "In order to be more inclusive we're going to discriminate against some."

Stop all Federal Funds to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo!
Better yet...Completely end all Federal Funds to California including its Socialists Schools, Colleges & Universities!!!

You see now, this is so loony it might as well be a story from the Babylon Bee. Nowadays the "real" world is so insane it can be difficult to tell the difference.

Basing admissions on race instead of academic accomplishment will result in a lower overall GPA for the University.

If I ever need a heart surgeon I would prefer one who earned their degree based on merit, not race.

Had a cousin who was straight A student apply for a spot at The Claremont Colleges. She was up against an applicant of significantly higher darker shade of skin who was a C student.

Who do you think got in?

In California, Jerry Brown and his legion of leftards continue to impose their taxes and fees on the people who bear the burden of the work AND try to get their children a decent education while Jerry Brown and his legion of leftards TAKE that money and put it into programs to benefit ILLEGALS who have NO RIGHT to anything in this country except an immediate return trip home and those mangworms who have been on the dole for eleven generations.

But, hey, eventually the people paying will realize they're getting screwed without the happy ending and move on so that the legion of leftards that overpopulate this state will be left with only themselves and their money to play with, and then we'll see how long those slush funds remain full.

Sucks when a University, like a Corporation, loses sight of what it's "Core Mission" is.

Of course, when it comes to "core mission" - teaching Engineering and Physics and generally STEM - Cal Poly DID always suck hind teat to Cal Tech anyway. :tongue2:

(No I'm not a Cal Tech alumni. Though I do have the softbound version of (Cal Tech Prof.) Richard Feynmann's "Lectures on Physics".)

Same comment as the other thread. This "diversity" crap has become a cult, a religion.

Sick of the G-D word!

Whatever can we do short of triggering the San Andreas to get this <censored>ing State out of our nation?

How about these colleges losing their accreditation. See how many students would actually attend.

I was of the understanding that the more black people that apply and get accepted, the larger the black population at that school will be. I would think it would be the same with white people. Go figure as far as this University in California is concerned.

Why stop short? Of course, the side-effect of triggering San Andreas is that in the resulting Tsunami we'd probably lose hugely-blue-state Hawaii as well. On the bright side, this would do wonders for Florida tourism and our flag DID look nice with only 48 stars on it. So, there's that.

(And if this post doesn't get me appointed to chair the Florida Tourism Board, then I don't know what will.)
