K-12 has been destroyed and now they are working on colleges.

It will be interesting to watch the trend to see if foreigners stop coming here for a college education.

It won't be due to the demands for safe places. It will be due to the demands that students are making to have curriculum changes made for content they deem "offensive". They want those pieces dropped from curriculums.

That will do more to destroy college education in the US.

i. (Association for Asian American Studies: Association for Asian American Studies | Advancing excellence in teaching and research).

b. At Dartmouth, 81 percent of Pan Asian students self-identify as Asian American, yet the College still does not have an academic program or coursework focused on the Asian American experience. Many other comparable institutions of higher learning have a formal Asian American Studies department.

3. Increase the number of courses on South Asia and the Middle East within the existing AMES program, which is currently skewed towards courses on East Asia.

a. Include more AMES courses related to all spheres of study, such as courses on economics, politics, and contemporary society. The focus of many AMES courses now is still Orientalist topics like ancient culture and religion.

4. Establish Korean and Hindi-Urdu language programs within the Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures (AMELL) department. Dartmouth is the only Ivy League institution without Korean and Hindi-Urdu language courses.

5. Increase the number of Asian faculty hires in AMES and AMELL to teach language, literature, and culture classes. A majority of AMES and AMELL professors are not Asian; in higher education, we need multiple perspectives, and in the AMES and AMELL faculty, we lack the perspective of the very cultural groups we are studying.

___________________________

That's Asian involvement, not just a footnote. Sorry.
I imagine that at Dartmouth, this is an economic issue more than it is a social one. If there was a high demand for these programs, Dartmouth would create these programs to in order to capitalize off increased demand.


Given this, it is unlikely there are enough students to fill these classes. In order to validate the results, it would be necessary to conduct a statistical analysis of the elasticity of demand, which can be a difficult process.

I agree but young people sometimes fail to grasp these things. Where populations are small, it is best to create student groups. That's what we did during my college years. However, some students today are clearly different.

They are? Because the concerned student 1950 demands from Mizzou, which set this all off, implicitly required reducing the population of Hispanics, Asians, and American Indians on campus (yes, they used "American Indians" which is apparently the correct phrase now?).
They also explicitly request reducing the number of professors from each of these three groups.

Okay, just read through them to make sure. You are wrong. "Indigenous students" are mentioned for enrollment quotas, but no other minorities are included in the national tuition demands or national enrollment demands. Less than 12 of the specific school demands included other minorities and many of them called for reducing the presence of other minorities on campus to be in line with their proportion of the population (Hispanics and especially Asians are over represented on most campuses, especially outside the border states).
