Duke Divinity School & Diversity

photo Duke Div 3Duke Divinity School is in the news again. This time a conservative professor was critical of diversity training and urged his colleagues to stay away: ““Don’t lay waste your time by doing so. It’ll be, I predict with confidence, intellectually flaccid: there’ll be bromides, clichés and amen-corner rah-rahs in plenty. When (if) it gets beyond that, its illiberal roots and totalitarian tendencies will show.” Now it seems the resistant professor will be retiring early. Read about it HERE.

I commend Dr. Thea Portier-Young and Dean Elaine Heath for their support for the diversity training.
