What does it say about America and the current state of traditional American values when a university “diversity director” gets paid this amount of money plus benefits?
As reported by our friends at The College Fix: “Michigan State University’s new vice president/chief diversity and inclusion officer (CDO), Jabbar Bennett, was offered a cool $315,000 per year salary, as well as a $700 “monthly vehicle allowance,” according to The State News.
“Bennett actually will earn just under $300,000 between his start date of December 1 through June 30, however, due to COVID-related “financial strain[s].”
“Bennett also gets a $25,000 signing bonus “in lieu of reimbursement of moving expenses,” and “upon request” two free tickets to any MSU football, men’s basketball and/or men’s hockey game (if available).
“The new CDO’s duties include working with MSU officials to develop “diversity, equity and inclusion” plans, “designing delivery education and training programs” and being involved in various hiring processes.”
