The University of Minnesota Loves Diversity

The University of Minnesota loves diversity, Eric Falkenstein notes:

The University of Minnesota has a new booklet out articulating how much they love diversity. How much? They say “diversity” 230 times in 18 pages. As a local journalist noted about a different program at the U:
[A]spiring teachers there must repudiate the notion of “the American Dream” in order to obtain the recommendation for licensure required by the Minnesota Board of Teaching. Instead, teacher candidates must embrace — and be prepared to teach our state’s kids — the task force’s own vision of America as an oppressive hellhole: racist, sexist and homophobic.

It seems like the essence of a higher education is diversity, not of thought, but of human subgroups based on ethnicity, religion, race, and sex.
