DONE WITH DEI: UNC Votes to Gut DEI Department, Give Money to Campus Cops; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.14.24

According to a Daily Wire report, the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill has gutted its DEI Department and has decided to reallocate the cash to campus cops.

The vote was unanimous to divert the $2.3 million dollars towards campus safety.

“I think that DEI in a lot of people’s minds is divisiveness, exclusion and indoctrination,” budget committee vice chairman Marty Kotis said. “We need more unity and togetherness, more dialogue, more diversity of thought.”

“It’s important to consider the needs of all 30,000 students, not just the 100 or so that may want to disrupt the university’s operations,” Kotis said. “It takes away resources for others.”

“My personal opinion is that there’s administrative bloat in the university,” Board Chairman David Boliek told the Raleigh News & Observer. “Any cuts in administration and diverting of dollars to rubber-meets-the-road efforts like public safety and teaching is important.”

From The Daily Wire:

Anti-Israel protests have roiled UNC Chapel Hill’s campus for weeks. Last month, police detained more than 30 people at a pro-Palestinian encampment where protesters took down the American flag and replaced it with a Palestinian flag.

“When you destroy property or you take down the U.S flag and you have to put up gates around it — that costs money,” Kotis, the budget committee vice chairman said. “It’s imperative that we have the proper resources for law enforcement to protect the campus.”

Dozens of protesters have been arrested across multiple campuses, including at Northeastern University in Boston, Emerson College in Boston, Emory University in Atlanta, Virginia Tech University, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Mary Washington in Virginia.
