Diversity lacking on campus

    The title of this report is incorrect. It should read, “Racial diversity on campus is close to that of Des Moines.”

    The shopworn term “Diversity” is now a classic shibboleth. It is practically devoid of meaning. What you and other writers who use this term actually wish to convey is, “we don’t have enough black folks enrolled” — never mind Hispanics or Asians.

    But, your title is correct in this regard. Drake’s faculty sorely lacks ideological, religious, and ethnic diversity.

    Hopefully you will do a follow-on piece that examines how many of Drake faculty are registered Republicans, Conservatives; Fundamentalist Christians; Orthodox Jews; devout Muslims; Hispanics; Asians, and Native Americans.

    I am sure that the Faculty/Administration Establishment of Drake is willing to make efforts to ensure that it doesn’t look the same as long as it thinks the same!
