The following comes from a May 10 Santa Clara University press release:
In a time of heightened global attention to racial and social issues impacting people of color signified by unrest across the nation’s campuses, Santa Clara University President Michael E. Engh, S.J., has convened a Blue Ribbon Commission on Diversity and Inclusion.
The decision to establish a commission followed a discussion within the Board of Trustees, about the nationwide state of campus racial climates. Student leaders in the Unity 4 campus initiative on campus have also provided significant input.
The move signals the president’s commitment to a serious, long-term approach toward resolving systemic challenges.
He has enlisted leaders from the Silicon Valley and the local community to serve on the Commission. They will leverage their significant experience with advancing diversity and inclusion in delivering on their charge.
The Commission, which is expected to make formal recommendations in the fall, will examine ways in which the University can better recruit, retain, and support minorities who are underrepresented in students, faculty, and staff.
– How Can even the Pretense of Diversity Exist – when the Campus Thought Police are the only ones allowed in to the room?
Quis custodiet ipsos…

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Who guards the Misandrist Guards?
BTW – Whats with the ‘color-ism’ of BLUE Ribbons, why not silver duck tape to Silence Un-Good Viewpoints properly?
Well, Santa Clara University certainly isn’t too Catholic. In fact, it’s hardly Catholic at all.
LOVE these above posts, Michael McDermott! You ought to submit these posts, for publication in a good source– and get paid for it, too! Excellent!
Linda Marie – If you can find an interested source I would consider it. It would help defray the cost of the Pariah status that goes with making them, kinda like the paid ‘anonymous’ trolls around here, only different. Ahem.
Speaking of “multiculturalism”– I recently received information regarding the Salesian Missions, that is quite SCANDALOUS!!! Their Director of the Office of International Programs, a Puerto Rican named Mr. Jaime Correa-Montalvo, implemented a scandalous “Life Choices” program, in South Africa, that is highly immoral! (Sex-ed for youth, with contraceptives; etc.) Additionally– Mr. Correa-Montalvo has been involved in online “gay entertainment”– very scandalous!! MAKES ME SICK!! No donations to them, until they are fully cleaned up!
Have you given in the past?
Yes, Bob One, when the priest announces a second collection— usually for some charitable cause of the Church– everyone gives! You, too, I bet! “Give to the Salesian Missions,” right?? “Here is our guest speaker, a priest, nun, or lay worker, to tell you all about their work, in their Missions.” Etc. Last Sunday, we had a speaker from Catholic Charities, at the end of the Mass — with a second collection, afterwards! Sadly, Catholic Charities of San Francisco, has been known for many scandals!
To get Salesian Missions’ quarterly pamphlet, a 4″x 6″ magazine, as Linda Marie mentions above Bob One, you have to contribute (as we do). I wonder why you would question her. Do YOU give to Salesian Missions?
No surprise…..more inmates running the asylum.
I am black and I can tell you that this has nothing to do with blacks but it is all about making the President look cool. I went to a Jesuit high school at the same time they started their diversity program and it was a disaster. Instead of recruiting well mannered Catholic middle class blacks that could fit in and succeed, they just went and get the first blacks they could find. They weren’t even Catholic. They all failed or get kicked out. They made all blacks look bad and increased prejudice of blacks among the students.
The diversity programs are not about the students black and white but just about making the administration look cool. They put zero thought…
And now it begins, BREAKING NEWS on CNN Pope Francis will start ordaining women as deacons, now the S.S.P.X. will never come home to Rome.
Here’s an idea, Fr. Engh, S.J.. How about before you focus on making the university diverse you focus on making it Catholic??? Everything right should follow when you do something epic like that. Sigh.
Peter, thanks for the honest comments. And Michael…Two words – Anonymous Blog! The interested will come. I’m living proof.
