Keywords:diversity, equity, inclusion, higher education, faculty
Managerialism in higher education is often a reaction that presidents and boards employ when trying to show they are tackling obvious problems. Hiring “Chief Diversity Offices” reflects this trend, and reveals the difficulty of administrators and faculty in seeing past the hierarchy of colonialism and addressing the mandate for authentic inclusion by returning to a pre-colonial mindset via critical, counter-hegemonic education and worldview reflection.
