The university is dismantling its diversity, equity, and inclusion infrastructure.  DEI is a sociopolitical movement. It overrides the idea that equal opportunity is the key to a just society in America. 

The DEI program at UF cost taxpayers  $5 million annually.  But listen to this: An article by OpenTheBooks in Substacks reports that the University of Virginia spends $20 million on 235 DEI employees. The article says that it takes tuition payments from nearly 1,000 undergraduates just to pay the DEI base salaries.

Question: Is this this the best way to use educational dollars?

Or should universities focus on academic excellence, the core mission?
