WATCH: 'DEI has taken over' civics education
National Association of Scholars Research Associate John Sailer discussed his case study that examines pervasive diversity, equity, and inclusion at Arizona’s public universities.
In a May 2022 report, National Association of Scholars Research Associate John Sailer found that public Arizona universities color American civics and history courses with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) principles.
At Arizona State University, University of Arizona, and Northern Arizona University, “DEI has taken over the aim that we have called civic education,” Sailer told Campus Reform.
“It focuses on the watchwords of identity politics and… has become institutional policy,” he added.
DEI training is mandatory at Arizona’s universities but is also being supplied at universities and colleges outside of Arizona, Sailer added.
As previously reported by Campus Reform, colleges and universities spend thousands to provide DEI training and hire DEI staff.
