Backlash against DEI spreads to more states

Sharing is Caring!

The backlash against diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives has indeed spread to more states. In at least 22 states, measures related to DEI at state university systems have been either banned or rolled back. For instance, in Utah, Republican state Rep. Katy Hall successfully sponsored a new law that prohibits the use of DEI statements in applications for medical, dental schools, and other graduate programs. The law also eliminates central offices dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusionWhile the intent is to shift higher education away from a focus on identity, discussions about DEI will still be allowed in classroom instruction and researchIt’s part of a broader culture war, and the approach varies across states, but Utah’s stance aims for a more nuanced perspective on diversity and inclusion.
