The Diversity Camel Gets Its Nose Under The Engineering Tent

by George Leef

In today’s Pope Center piece Michigan State University engineering professor Indrek Wichman writes about the incursion of political correctness into his field. Engineering is being invaded by social engineering to ensure a better “balance” of students and guarantee that National Science Foundation proposals include “diversity” considerations.

American colleges and universities still graduate well-trained engineers-to-be, but even this bastion of rigor is on the slippery slope of trading off excellence to placate the multicultural gods.
