UNC destroys DEI on campus in very bold move

UNC board votes to shift $2.3 million in DEI funds to campus police

The UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees has unanimously voted to reallocate $2.3 million from diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs to fund “public safety” initiatives. The decision was made during a special board meeting on Monday morning.

Marty Kotis, the vice chair of the board’s budget and finance committee, was a key figure in introducing and passing the “flex cut amendment.” He criticized DEI programs for being “discriminatory and divisive”.

Kotis expressed a preference for unity, togetherness, and diversity of thought over what he perceives as the current divisive nature of DEI initiatives. He and other board members emphasized the importance of additional funding for public safety to safeguard the campus from disruptive groups.

“When you destroy property or you take down the U.S flag and you have to put up gates around it — that costs money,” Kotis said. “It’s imperative that we have the proper resources for law enforcement to protect the campus.”
