This has nothing to do with the pursuit of scholarship. It’s just mandatory political indoctrination.

Public university hosts ‘Social Justice January’ daylong training for students, staff
In a room tucked away at North Carolina State University’s African American Cultural Center last week, nearly two dozen administrators, students and teachers sat in groups discussing bias and stereotypes.
It was one of four unique sessions at the public university on Jan. 23 that made up part of “Social Justice January,” billed as an effort to advance advocacy and social justice, according to organizers. The organizers consisted of the GLBT, Women’s and the African American Cultural centers along with the Multicultural Student Affairs division.
Now in its fourth year, the latest iteration was themed “Beyond the Buzzwords,” addressing diversity, privilege, intersectionality, and oppression.
The first session, “Unlearning Diversity,” explored “how biases, stereotypes, and other cultural narratives are constructed, and how this impacts leadership and other aspects of campus life,” organizers stated.
A College Fix reporter attended the introduction of this session, which drew approximately 20 predominantly female participants, including administrators, some students and other staff.
Unlearning diversity means “unpacking the cultural baggage we’ve been taught,” said Marcela Cervantes-Torres, the assistant director for community outreach and engagement in Multicultural Student Affairs.
