Mandatory DEI Courses Spark Controversy in US Colleges

There are certain things you have to do to graduate from college. Like taking specific classes or earning enough credits. That all makes sense. But things have changed. Now, it’s not just about learning, it’s about following a certain way of thinking. It’s not the way college used to be.

A lot of colleges now require students to take classes about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in order to graduate. A group called Speech First looked at 248 colleges and found that 165 of them have this requirement. These classes divide students based on things like race and gender, and they teach that some people are always the “oppressors” while others are always the “oppressed.” It’s not fair and it’s not teaching people to think for themselves.

This way of thinking is taking over college campuses. It’s not about learning anymore, it’s about pushing one specific viewpoint. Conservative students are being ignored and pushed aside. It’s not right.

Even the people in charge of these DEI programs are causing problems. The head of diversity at Columbia University’s medical school was found to have copied a large part of his dissertation from other sources without giving them credit. That’s not something a leader should be doing.

Some colleges are starting to realize that this way of doing things isn’t fair. The University of Arkansas is getting rid of their DEI department. And in Florida, one college had to stop their DEI program because of a new law. It’s a step in the right direction.
