The University of North Carolina-Charlotte’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is offering an extensive list of ‘diversity’ courses that include “Changing Realities of Women’s Lives” and “Ecological Feminism.”

The 21-page list, which is called “CLAS Diversity Courses,” shows the 345 classes available that represent a spectrum of fields and majors including Religious Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, and Africana Studies, The College Fix reports.

The list was created after students, during a forum, requested more diverse perspectives be made available by the public university, something that may surprise when one considers the website of the university has a “diversity” section.

“We are committed to addressing the cultural, economic, educational, environmental, health, and social needs of the greater Charlotte region.  Our campus community is comprised of people who represent the wide breadth of gender identities, races and ethnicities, faith traditions, nationalities, and other social categories and backgrounds,” the website states. “These varied identities and experiences enrich the University as a whole.  UNC Charlotte strives to celebrate and leverage the benefits of this diversity, and to sustain an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, and staff.”

“When we consider the concept of diversity, broadly speaking, we mean that lives, perspectives, and practices are enriched when we actively engage in discourse and are inclusive in our actions around complex ideas and issues,” Shawn Long, the Associate Dean of UNC-Charlotte, told The College Fix.

According to Long, those issues include race and ethnicity; sex; gender identity; political viewpoints; sexual orientation; special health needs; age; belief system; country of origin; or socio-economic status.

Currently there are no diversity requirements for graduating the university, however, Dean Nancy Gutierrez said the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences is committed to “developing an inclusive environment where diversity, in all its forms, is valued and incorporated in the full-range of college activities.”

Gender-focused classes at the college actually transcend gender boundaries.

“Transfeminism,” as an example, gives students the opportunity to “imagine connections between trans and feminist studies” as well as “explore feminist perspectives within trans studies–such as intersectionality–and consider the contours and legacy of feminist transphobia.”

    I think all of these “diversity” professors just stir the pot to attempt to secure participation in their classes. And for some colleges where mandatory participation are required, that is the only way they can guarantee class numbers when in truth the classes are biased, racist, and worthless.

      it is the only paying job they can get…the ginned up positions of ‘diversity’ at taxpayer funded institutions…they are nothing but trouble makers to boot

    Yeah, I think I know why there are soo many shooters from the left/insane-asylums/fringe variety on campuses. It is because of these clowns. They first make you crazy, then force you into insanity.

    Are there classes for white culture, or masculinism? That would be diversity, wouldn’t it?

    The more we talk about diversity, the less diverse we become. I’m not quite sure how that pans out, but focusing on what separates us (eg. Feminist studies) seems to make us more divisive and less diverse.

    Strange but true.

    The only diversity needed is Americans and anti-Americans. Anti-Americans can be deported or be encouraged to emigrate on their own. There’s a diverse amount of countries that they can be given the boot to. And I’m pro-choice to allow them to be deported to Cuba, Venezuela or Siberian Salt Mine (maybe deportation to the “Green Inferno” can be offered for the very special snowflakes).

    I love the last part where UNC singles out women and their responsibility to let men pretend to be women. The trans debate is always about trans women and how real women must submit. Silly feminists just need the patriarchy to wear a dress, and then they let men rule.
