Копипаста. Новая миссия Йеля

First, colleges and universities have subordinated their historic
mission
of free inquiry to a new pursuit of social justice.

Consider the remarkable evolution of Yale’s mission statement.
For decades the university said its purpose was “to create, preserve,
and disseminate knowledge.” The language was banal enough,
but nevertheless on the money.

In 2016, however, Yale’s president announced a new mission statement,
which no longer mentions knowledge. Instead, Yale is now officially
“committed to improving the world” and educating “aspiring leaders”
not only through research, but also through “practice.”

It may surprise you to learn that the faculty plays almost no role in the admissions process at most universities. Instead, that process has been handed to specialized “admissions departments.” Faculty members who want to be involved in admissions are relegated to toothless advisory committees, where they are lucky to be invited to glimpse the making of the sausage. Admissions “professionals” are less interested in traditional academic criteria, such as scholastic talent and intellectual openness, than they are in flashier virtues such as “activism,” “leadership” or “overcoming adversity.” Students now arrive on campus having been instructed to promote themselves as “social entrepreneurs” or “change makers.” It has become common for applicants to claim to have “founded,” at 17, some shiny-sounding nonprofit devoted to beneficent acts.

actually, this doesn't surprise me at all
makes me wanna puke though

А вот интересно, Грэту в Йель возьмут? Наверное возьмут, иначе будет им Позор и Цорэс.

Ну и как не устает напоминать благородный О - почему тебе вдруг разонравилось собственное лекарство? Ведь это как раз то, за что ты голосуешь, проповедуешь на всех углах и втираешь своим детям.
