Questioning “diversity”

Last week I took a close look at some of the arguments commonly used to justify the “diversity” movement and found them unpersuasive. Here I take a look at several more, which don’t stand up very well either.


My conclusion is that there aren’t any good arguments for the diversity movement.  The arguments advanced as justifying it are only thin excuses for a policy that many important people in higher education want to do for ideological or personal reasons.
