This past Saturday, they honored their seniors’ final home ga...

Administrative Bloat Evades Real Issue

Editorial Board

April 14, 2017

The General Faculty Committee considered recommendations for implementation from the Strategic Plan Implementation Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion working group today, including a suggestion to create a new “Chief Diversity Officer” administrative position. Though well intentioned, adding yet another six-figure administrative job seems like a roundabout way of handling the College’s diversity issues that would ultimately prove ineffective.

Seeking to expand...
