Butler University is Now Forcing Students to Take Social Justice Classes

Incoming freshmen and future students at Butler University will now be forced to complete a Social Justice and Diversity requirement as a part of the school’s core curriculum.

The course seeks to “analyze topics such as intersecting dimensions of identity and inequity, the causes and impacts of privilege, power and oppression, critical race theory and feminism, among others,” as noted by the Butler Collegian. 

Terri Carney, the recently-appointed faculty director for the SJD area of the core curriculum, told the Butler Collegian that “the importance of the discussion included in the SJD requirement outweighs any argument against its addition.”

“…The core curriculum represents the most fundamental values that Butler University has as an institution of higher learning, and for a core curriculum in 2020 to not require any sort of knowledge about gender, race, class, sexuality…how can we even take ourselves seriously if we aren’t doing that?” Carney said.

Seriously? We stopped taking you seriously when you implemented the “Strategies for Resistance” to Trump course.
