NEWS BRIEFS: Say What?! “DEI is a Fraud and What We’re Seeing on Campuses is Proof of That”

So says U.S. Representative Burgess Owens (R-Utah), who chairs the House higher education subcommittee. From Inside Higher Education: “Republicans in Congress have become increasingly critical of how some college students rallied in support of the Palestinian people following the Hamas attack, and of how universities have responded to the outbreak of antisemitic speech, threats and assaults against Jewish students. Some students have said they don’t feel safe on campuses as their peers rally for the Palestinian cause, share pro-Hamas statements on social media, and display controversial slogans. Meanwhile, pro-Palestinian students say they’re facing backlash for criticizing the Israeli government. Both Jewish and Muslim students have been assaulted.”
