NC State Rolls Out PhD In “Social Justice Education”

North Carolina State University announced a Ph.D. in social justice education on Monday.

The program, which will debut in fall 2019, aims to teach educators, or “scholar-activists,” about social justice and how they can bring about change in the classroom setting, according to an NC State news release.

“The goal of the program is to help educators recognize and disrupt systems of oppression by helping to foster and create equitable learning environments,” Jessica DeCuir-Gunby, a professor of educational psychology and director of graduate programs for the Teacher Education and Learning Sciences Department, said in the news release.

Faculty will come from various research areas, such as “social justice teacher education, multicultural education and literacy, education and immigration and diversity and equity in schools and communities,” according to the Ph.D. program’s webpage. The program also claimed it would focus on “equity in STEM” and “scholar activism.”

“This program area of study promotes social diversity while naming, interrogating and challenging oppression, exploitation and marginalization within education at the local, state, national and international levels,” the website states.

Courses that are required to attain the Ph.D. in social justice education include “Social Justice in Education,” “Diversity & Equity Scholar Leader Course,” and more.

NCSU College Republicans chairman Kye Laughter told Campus Reform he views this new Ph.D. program as a way to push social justice on future students.

“I think any person pursuing a degree or a Ph.D. in social justice already has an agenda in mind and this field will only allow bias to grow not only among those in academia but for those being taught this dangerous ideology,” Laughter said.

The chairman also suggested that the program shows that the university has a double standard, contending that a Ph.D. in a conservative thought field would never be created.

“Our university should not be afraid of discussing different ideas, but I am doubtful we will see any Ph.D. programs in conservative ideologies anytime soon, as academia has been infested with liberalism,” Laughter said, while noting that the university excels in fields like agriculture, engineering, and architecture.

Evergreen “no whites allowed” College Cuts Budget by $6 Million Due to Enrollment Plunge

Olympia, Washington: The student protests a year ago due to liberal intolerance, which included death threats to teachers and administrators and culminated in a siege over the school, contributed to the already declining enrollment. As a result, the budget will be cut by $6 million, which will lead to further declines in enrollment.

Evergreen State College of “no-whites-allowed” fame is slashing its budget, hiking student fees and planning for layoffs due to plunging enrollment numbers.

(Olympia, Washington) Evergreen State College will look to cut more than 10 percent from its operating budget for 2018-19 and raise student fees because of declining enrollment.

In a memo to the college’s board of trustees, Evergreen President George Bridges wrote that cuts totaling $5.9 million are needed because of lower-than-expected tuition revenue. This will require “some” layoffs and eliminating “many positions that are currently vacant,” according to Bridges.

“The work of reducing the operating budget is in a very dynamic state at this time. The number of staff and faculty positions and programs impacted by the proposed reductions will change as this work continues over the next few weeks,” according to the memo dated May 8.

One way the college is looking to cut its operating budget is by moving expenses into non-operating budget accounts, including those funded by student fees.

Officials have recommended a combined increase of $236 per year in student fees for 2018-19:

▪ The new student fee, which students pay once when they start at Evergreen, would go up $100 to $275 for those starting in the fall and to $145 for those starting in the winter or spring.

▪ The wellness fee, which covers basic health services and referrals to off-campus providers, would go up $111 to $420 per year.

▪ The services and activities fee would go up $25 to $649 per year for full-time students.

The fee increases were presented this week to the board of trustees, which will vote on the proposal at its meeting in June.

Enrollment at Evergreen has fallen steadily over the past decade. A recent report on last year’s protests on campus suggests that trend will continue.

At this time last year, allegations of racism and intolerance on the Olympia campus erupted into protests and pulled Evergreen into a national debate over free speech on college campuses. Later a threatening phone call forced the campus to close for three days.

The report, commissioned by the college, highlighted the potential effect on enrollment, which fell 5 percent from fall 2016 to fall 2017.

“Further declines in applications (possibly by as much as 20 percent) and enrollments are expected for the Fall of 2018 based on current year-to-year data. …” according to the report, which also was presented to trustees this week.

“The financial pressures in lost operating revenue from those declines will be significant, and will potentially generate another sense of ‘trauma’ on the campus.”
