A California University is looking to decrease the number of white people in the name of diversity.
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 â€œimprove diversityâ€ 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 â€œapplications from underrepresented minority students doubled between 2008 and 2018.â€
â€œIn 2011, the campus was 63 percent Caucasian,â€ the May 2 report informs readers, â€œin fall of 2017, it was less than 55 percent â€¦ but there is still much work to do.â€
The public research institution states it wishes to get those numbers more in line with the stateâ€™s percentage of white people, which recent polls hold at 39.7 percent of the population.
â€œTo further advance its goals of reflecting the demographics of California and creating a more diverse and inclusive campus community, Cal Poly administration has developed the following Diversity Action Initiatives document,â€ the reportÂ states.
In it, administration details a multi-year effort with dozens of intitiatives, including ones to further lower the percentage of white students on campus and increase the number of faculty of color.
The idea that you would accept or not accept a student due to their race is blatant racism. College admissions should be on how strong your transcript/resume is not the color of your skin.
