From Campus Reform:

Claremont McKenna College (CMC) is funding a minorities-only meditation program for individuals who have experienced race-related stress.

On January 25, Vince Greer, the Assistant Dean of Students for Diversity and Inclusion at CMC, distributed the following message to the students, faculty and staff of the college:

“Dear CMC community, The Cultural Influences on Mental Health Center at CMC is offering a FREE 8-week compassionate meditation program for ethnic minority students to learn how to heal from racism- and race-related incidents. Students must identify as an ethnic minority, must have experienced race-related stress, and must have attended one of the Claremont Colleges for at least one semester. If you meet these requirements and are in need of such services, you are eligible to sign up!” [emphasis original.]

    Nothing is “free”. Somebody is paying for this. Alumni and parents must be suffering from disconnect when it comes to where the tuition is being spent.
