University of California Expands Diversity Bureaucracy While Cutting Back on Education

Money is so tight in the Age of Obama that even government-sponsored universities have been forced to cut back — especially in California, where Governor Moonbeam et al. are shoveling financial aide at illegal aliens who are committing a crime just by being in the country. Like the state government, the University of California is run by moonbats, as can be seen by its funding priorities:

California’s budget crisis has reduced the University of California to near-penury, claim its spokesmen. “Our campuses and the UC Office of the President already have cut to the bone,” the university system’s vice president for budget and capital resources warned earlier this month… Well, not exactly to the bone. Even as UC campuses jettison entire degree programs and lose faculty to competing universities, one fiefdom has remained virtually sacrosanct: the diversity machine.

Not only have diversity sinecures been protected from budget cuts, their numbers are actually growing. The University of California at San Diego, for example, is creating a new full-time “vice chancellor for equity, diversity, and inclusion.” This position would augment UC San Diego’s already massive diversity apparatus, which includes the Chancellor’s Diversity Office, the associate vice chancellor for faculty equity, the assistant vice chancellor for diversity, the faculty equity advisors, the graduate diversity coordinators, the staff diversity liaison, the undergraduate student diversity liaison, the graduate student diversity liaison, the chief diversity officer, the director of development for diversity initiatives, the Office of Academic Diversity and Equal Opportunity, the Committee on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues, the Committee on the Status of Women, the Campus Council on Climate, Culture and Inclusion, the Diversity Council, and the directors of the Cross-Cultural Center, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, and the Women’s Center.

As for tedious classwork that could be applied to the real world:

UC San Diego is adding diversity fat even as it snuffs out substantive academic programs. In March, the Academic Senate decided that the school would no longer offer a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering… At the same time, the body mandated a new campus-wide diversity requirement for graduation.

No wonder Comrade Obama nationalized student loans in one of his Hugo Chavez-style power grabs. Nobody is going to want to spend hard-earned money on the increasingly useless pieces of paper granted by these moonbat echo chambers. But coasting along for a few years on someone else’s money that no one expects you to pay back while you listen to professors extol homosexuality and bray about the evils of European lineage is an easy alternative to entering adulthood right after high school.
