"Universities are, if anything, institutions based on ideas and thought. So it has always been amazing to me that university diversity programs focus not on having a diversity of ideas, but on have a diversity of skin pigment and reproductive plumbing. In fact, if anything, most universities seem to be aspiring towards creating an intellectual monoculture. Diversity of opinion, of politics, and of general outlook among prospective students are not even decision-making variables in any educational institution I know of. And within the faculty, many institutions seem intent on purging from their ranks any single voice that diverges from the majoritarian view. "
Or as blogger Kate Werk likes to say, what's the opposite of diversity? University.
