“Affirm and guarantee . . . that the institution will not use a diversity statement or any other assessment of an applicant’s commitment to specified concepts in any hiring, promotions, or admissions process or decision.” So reads Senate Bill 83, recently introduced in the Ohio Legislature.

It is about the quality of their education and about enabling them to become independent thinkers, ready for citizenship in a free society.”
