MU Diversity Fee Is Such Crap

Friday, March 16, 2007

    I am incredibly saddened to see that students at the University of Missouri-Columbia will soon have $3.19 each of their student activity fees going into a fund solely for minority groups.

(Yes, I know MSA changed the wording so that all groups are technically eligible for the funds as long as it is used for "diversity" programs. That is just a formality)

Students already pay about $10 a semester to fund student organizations on campus. That fee goes to the the Organization Resource Group, which distributed over $320,000 last year to student organizations. The organizations apply for funding and their applications are evaluated by a 12-member committee of students. Apparently that isn't fair enough. Guess how much money IFC and PHA greek organizations are eligible for of that? NONE. NPHC organizations can get funding to send their members to National Conventions, whereas IFC and PHA members have to foot the bill themselves.
