Regulatory Capture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Higher Education

“The DEI cult that seeks to capture California Community Colleges subscribes to the bizarre and untested hypothesis that you can fight fire with fire and cure discrimination with more discrimination.”

On March 21, 2021, the Governing Board at the California Community Colleges (CCC), the state-wide public higher education entity in charge of 116 community colleges, held a public meeting to discuss a regulatory proposal on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA). The proposal would amend the California Code of Regulations to establish a set of minimum DEIA standards for employee evaluation and tenure review processes.

In other words, America’s largest system of higher education—and the world’s third largest—has decided to rollout the political edict of DEI for its over 91,000 employees. Those wishing to obtain satisfactory job performance reviews or secure tenured positions must commit to navigating the ideological map situated among “intersectionality of social identities,” “multiple axes of oppression,” “minoritize(d) subordination,” and “equitable student outcomes.” (All these buzzwords derive from major tenets of critical race theory, commonly referred to as CRT.) CCC brands the DEIA regulatory change as an indispensable part of its “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Integration Plan,” with a vision to become an “anti-racist institution.”
