Yes, "diversity" has become a sacred cow at many colleges. And therein lies the problem. Diversity is more highly esteemed than achievement.

You might be surprised to know that it is also sacred in public high schools.

Diversity is more like what falls out of a sacred cow's bumhole.

Not really the cow itself, more like the cow's work product.

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...
