In 2007 the University of Iowa increased its budget for the “administrative costs for affirmative action, diversity and multicultural programs” by 25%. “UI expects to spend $738,718 in FY 2007 compared to $589,018 in FY 2006.”
And what did all those “affirmative action, diversity and multicultural programs” achieve?
Non-minority students graduated at a 67 percent rate compared with a 57 percent rate for minority students, according to six-year-graduation rates from 2001 to 2007.
But let’s not harp on the half of the glass that’s empty. I’m sure that the 43% who left school without graduating took great pride and satisfaction, while they were still at Iowa, in providing “diversity” to the white and Asian students.
