Cuts kill diversity.
Funding cuts are undoing efforts to boost diversity among college leaders in Britain. Government-backed initiatives launched after 2001 helped the number of Black college leaders climb from four in 2002 to 17 in 2012. Since then, however, the British government has cut funding by about $195 million for programs designed to help Black, Asian and minority ethnic college managers climb the academic ladder, resulting in the number of minorities in college leadership roles falling to 14.
The reduced funding has forced programs to scale back recruiting efforts and to consolidate diversity initiatives for racial minorities, women, and gays and lesbians, increasing competition.
