University of Chicago Considering Creation of ‘Critical Race Studies’ Department

UChicago considers entire academic department for ‘critical race’ studies

The University of Chicago is considering the creation of a critical race studies department and is funding an effort to look into creating the new academic unit. The move came just weeks after President Donald Trump had signed an executive order banning federal contractors and grant recipients from teaching Critical Race Theory, which the Trump administration deemed “divisive” and “anti-American propaganda.”

President Joe Biden reversed the order in a flurry of executive orders of his own.

As Campus Reform reported in October, a group of faculty members initiated a diversity strike, during which faculty members pledged not to participate or collaborate in university-sponsored diversity initiatives until their demands were met.

Among the group’s demands was a call for the university to form an “External Advisory Council” to “provide advice” to faculty members as they develop a proposal for a new critical race studies department.
