Repost- The Diversity Staff at the University of Michigan Is Nearly 100 People- Intellectual Takeout

June 3, 2018

If you wondered why tuition is so hight, it is very easy to be generous with other people’s money. RM

“The University of Michigan currently employs a diversity staff of nearly 100 (93) full-time diversity administrators, officers, directors, vice-provosts, deans, consultants, specialists, investigators, managers, executive assistants, administrative assistants, analysts, and coordinators.

“More than one-quarter (26) of these “diversicrats” earn annual salaries of more than $100,000, and the total payroll for this small army is $8.4 million. When you add to cash salaries an estimated 32.45% for UM’s very generous fringe benefit package for the average employee in this group (retirement, health care, dental insurance, life insurance, long-term disability, paid leave, paid vacation, social security, unemployment insurance, Medicare, etc.) the total employee compensation for this group tops $11 million per year. And of course that doesn’t count the cost of office space, telephones, computers and printers, printing, postage, programs, training, or travel expenses.”

    Exactly what are all these people doing to earn their pay and benefits, and exactly how is the student population benefited by the expenditures involved in maintaining this cadre of “administrators” is a question that comes to mind, excuse me for posing a perhaps embarrassing question.
