- General Information
- Baylor University, a private Christian institution, has taken its first steps in implementing diversity training into its operations. This year, the university announced that its students, faculty, and staff will be required to engage in “diversity training” on an annual basis. See developments below:
According to First Things journal, "In a letter to students, faculty, and staff, the president of Baylor University recommended a resource on race that encourages readers to assess their thoughts and feelings using Tema Okun's 'characteristics of white supremacy culture'—characteristics that include individualism, objectivity, linear thinking, and logic."
According to First Things journal, "But some at the college continue to teach the same woke axioms found at most secular colleges today—that America is systemically racist because of ongoing white privilege and that white students need to repent of their ancestors’ racism because it is their own. Baylor’s Office of Equity and Inclusion has promoted these messages in student orientation, Student Life programs, some chapel programs, and in some classrooms."
