UNC Chapel Hill abolishes DEI department and transfers all funds to campus cops...

• Daily Mail

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has abolished its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program.

UNC Chapel Hill's Board of Trustees voted Monday to cut funding for diversity programs in next year's budget - and approved a change that would divert $2.3 million toward public safety and policing.

The vote to shift more funding to public safety comes as continued pro-Palestinian protests on UNC's campus have resulted in several arrests in recent weeks.
