Well, while perusing the latest somdnewsbot positing, I noticed this bit.
Which seems to imply there is at least two other people in the department of Diversity and Inclusion. A President and Vice President at least. Might be able to assume some staff of some kind, I cant imagine the Associate VP doing all the work. And the takeaway to me is that unless these are what the Navy calls collateral duties, meaning stuff you do outside your normal job but don't get paid for, we the taxpayers and students attending are paying three people or more to do a thing that should naturally just fold right into the HR and Admission departments. What am I missing?Dr. Kortet Mensah Announced as Associate Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion/Chief Diversity Officer;
"I aim to misbehave."
A 40 year push by colleges to convince society that parents should foot 100% of the bill (deeper pockets are able to pay more than the barren wasteland that is the pocket of most college kids.)
More kids going to college...(increased demand = increased cost)
States slashing budgetary funding of higher education. (students/parents have to foot more of the bill)
....anytime it is easy to get money to buy something, demand goes up and so do prices.....
....think housing boom....

Having gone to college on and off for umpteen years now, I can assure you the attitude is not that I, nor my parents will pay, it's "Fill out your FAFSA and get a pell grant, get a govt. loan, submit your info and we'll see if we can give you any assistance".
You can claim there's been a push, overall, to try and convince parents and students that college is the best way, the only way to make it in this country, but I certainly wouldn't say there's been a 4 decade push to make parents pay 100% of the bill. If that were the case, little Johnny and Suzy wouldn't be getting a (useless) degree in communications or theater arts.

If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.
