In addition to defunding DEI projects, the law also bars public colleges from infusing critical race theory and related grievance politics ideologies into curricula for general education courses. …
DeSantis also said Monday that some other progressive academic disciplines that he has suggested rarely translate to lucrative jobs that constructively contribute to society will be discouraged or dismantled in Florida higher education.
“Florida’s getting out of that game,” he said. “If you want to do things like gender ideology, go to Berkeley. Go to some of these other places.”
“If you look at the way this has actually been implemented across the country, DEI is better viewed as standing for ‘discrimination, exclusion, and indoctrination,’ and that has no place in our public institutions,” DeSantis said.
