    Cal Poly San Luis Obispo works on massive diversity and inclusion effort

    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.”

    Sounds like discrimination based on color. How progressive of them.

    Some colors are more colory than others. What are the Las Vegas odds that Cal Poly is also reducing/controlling the number of east and possibly south Asians as well?

    This is also why the California University system will be begging for money in the next couple of years.

    When I went to WMU, they purposely recruited in Detroit and still do. They also recruit from the UP and the northern LP. They want people from all over MI to attend, not just from the Dutch triangle. Race plays a factor, but it's not the only factor.

    Adjusting recruiting priorities is a far cry from actively reducing the percentage of a certain "race" (or "races") in the student body. That means double/triple/multiple "standards" in the area of acceptance. It will also mean problems with retention, as Cal Poly, currently, is VERY demanding - either the drop-out rate of the preferred students will be high, or Cal Poly will reduce its academic standards. All that will play out over a 5-10 year period, and 10 years out things will not be anything like the educrats imagined. But they will have been promoted or otherwise moved on, so they won't face consequences or have to deal with the mess they created.

    Maybe since a college degree isn't worth what it used to be they will give diplomas just for paying the tuition. and no one will care if the graduates are dumb as a stump.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    And the recent college grads are dumb as a box of rocks. They learn to the tests they take, but don't learn jack-sh*t. Besides borrowing a ton of $$$ and feeling entitled to a $100k job first year out.
