Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief predicts end of DEI in schools due to ‘blatant antisemitism’
February 5, 2024
Editor-in-Chief of the conservative outlet Campus Reform predicts that “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” initiatives will soon die out at universities due to the recent awareness of blatant antisemitism.
“I think we’re now seeing the beginning of the end of DEI because Americans are finally awake to the actual problem and they are willing to put pressure on the universities,” Zachary Marschall said on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “There are alumni donors putting pressure on their own universities.”
Bill Ackman, billionaire founder of Pershing Square Capital Management and a major donor to M.I.T. and other universities, is among many wealthy benefactors who have stopped funding schools they believe have gone too far with DEI and are too permissive of antisemitism. Ackman further called for Harvard to shut down its Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (OEDIB), saying it is “a major contributing source of discriminatory practices on campus and highly damaging to the culture and sense of community at Harvard.”
Antisemitism on college campuses made headlines in the past few months after the presidents of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University testified before Congress about the topic.
