According to CriticalRace.Org, a database with information from more than 500 institutions, over 236 colleges or universities include some form of mandatory student training of coursework related to critical race theory (CRT).

CriticalRace.org compiles the research and told Fox News the programs focus on concepts such as “anti-racism,” “equity,” “implicit bias” and of course critical race theory. Among the educational establishments, 149 institutions ”have some form of mandatory faculty or staff training, with 138 mandating school-wide curricular requirements.”

CriticalRace.org was founded by Williams A. Jacobson, a Cornell University law professor. “Our database shows how race has become a pervasive focus in higher education with a near universal insistence that racism is systemic in the United States” said Jacobson.

“Higher ed is focused on what divides people, exacerbating rather than solving problems” he added. Many authors whose writings explicitly call for racism and discrimination are part of the curriculum.

Fox News reports:

Authors Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi, whose book explicitly calls for discrimination, are widely included among books and writings in universities, according to Jacobson. For example, Northwestern University’s medical school made Kendi’s “How to be an Antiracist” mandatory reading for the summer of 2020. Other institutions included Kendi’s writings as resources for students.

The purported “anti-racism” or CRT-associated content is ubiquitous – appearing within curriculum, staff trainings and sometimes within training related specifically to hiring. For example, the University of Central Florida committed in 2020 to conduct implicit bias training and other trainings for everyone who participates in our hiring and search committee processes.

Some have required diversity-related content as part of students’ core courses. At Western New England University, for example, the class of 2022 was required to complete at least one “Anti-Racism and Cultural Competency Course.”
