Report shows UNC System wastes millions on CRT/DEI

Here are some highlights:

  • Total DEI administrative salaries across the system exceed $12 million.
  • Both UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State each have 11 DEI administrators making more than $100,000, with more than 30 DEI employees total at each school.
  • Salaries at each university total more than $3.25 million.
  • UNC System medical schools have extensive DEI administrative functions, including the UNC School of Medicine’s nine administrators dedicated to DEI and the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina’s five DEI administrators (three of whom earn more than $100,000).
  • All 16 schools have DEI aspirations laid out in their strategic plans.
  • At least seven schools require implicit bias training for all job search committees.
  • Curricula dedicated to DEI are expanding not only through increased general education requirements but also through “Living-Learning Communities” that promote social activism.
  • The Racial Equity Task Force is pressuring schools to conform to these mandates.
  • There is one bright spot:

    Robinson tells North State Journal that the UNC system is already in the process of creating an all funds budget, which will help to drill down and find DEI spending beyond just salaries.  “I think that in the future, we may be able to get a better handle on the spending,” said Robinson. “And if it’s not available in that all funds budget, then I do think there are opportunities for the legislature to look into it.
