Central Michigan Life – EDITORIAL: New UP requirement fits CMU’s core values, will not make it longer for students to graduate

At its April 4 meeting, the Academic Senate at Central Michigan University voted to add a new University Program category requiring students to take a course in non-race based discrimination.We think this addition will benefit students and the entire Central Michigan University community by creating a more inclusive campus — one of the university’s core values.The new category, subgroup IV-D, will require students starting in 2019 to take a class focused on discrimination issues regarding gender, sex, identity, sexuality, sexual orientation, religion or disability.The new requirement will not force students to take additional general education credits — which was many academic senators’ major critique earlier this semester.
