Do they actually TEACH anything here or do they just exist so a bunch of different people can walk around the campus, look diverse and feel good about themselves? This should make the curriculum vitae really easy: Major-Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, Minor-Languages and Cultures, Work Experience-None, Job you are seeking-Company CEO. But...But...I'm Diverse.
Dianne Harrison is the new president of California State University, Northridge (CSUN). It’s a small college in the Golden State but it sure is loaded with diversity. How do I know? Because Dianne has written a letter to the entire university, telling everyone how diverse they are and, more importantly, what a great person she is because she loves diversity. In her short email of around 800 words she refers to diversity no less than 17 times (and I have highlighted them in bold letters). Because it is so dripping with Orwellian double-speak, I thought it would be fun to reproduce...
