New York College Segregates Faculty and Staff by Race for Year-Long ‘Antiracism Institute’

Adam Sabes, Fox News, October 15, 2022

Ithaca College in New York is segregating faculty and staff by race for a year-long “Antiracism Institute.”

The optional weekly event, which is taking place during the 2022-2023 academic year, separates college faculty and staff members by “racial affinity groups.”


“Because Ithaca College is a predominantly white institution, much of the institute’s work is focused on unpacking the impact of centering whiteness and working to decenter these practices.”

“The curriculum will be based on building equity literacy abilities, starting with the recognition of systemic racism and features of white supremacy in person, policy & pedagogy. {snip}” the website states.

Faculty and staff members who are interested in joining the fall 2022 Antiracism Institute are taken to an application form where they are given the option to attend sessions every Monday for “faculty and staff who identify as people of color” or on Thursdays for “faculty and staff who identify as white.”
