    Cornell University has announced the addition of a “Diversity and Inclusion” course requirement for students that they must complete before graduation.

    Cornell University announced this week that the school will be adding a “Diversity and Inclusion” course to the graduation requirements. The proposal for the new requirement was passed by a faculty vote on Tuesday. 182 faculty members voted in favor of the requirement, 90 voted against it, and 18 abstained. The changes are expected to be implemented for students enrolled in the fall of 2020.

    Prof. Durba Ghosh, the Director of the Feminist, Gender and Sexuality program at Cornell University, said in a comment that she is excited about the new requirement.

    “I think most students think of questions of diversity and inclusion as a part of their education at Cornell so I am glad this set of requirements validates what many students are already doing,” Ghosh said in a comment to the Cornell student newspaper. “This curriculum is a promising step toward affirming the college’s commitment to our motto, ‘any person … any study.’”

    We had to take one 3 credit "Non-Western World" class at WMU in the 80s. They just didn't use the word diversity as much then. I took a cool anthropology class. We watched a movie of the Aborigines eating live lizards. At least, that's the one thing I clearly remember. I think it was the semester I pledged.

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
