A good take at the James G. Martin Center on how the Left has commandeered higher education and its students to focus on class and group warfare, usually escalating to racial tensions:
Sadly, many college professors, administrators, and activists are promoting a very different view, one that is at odds with decades of scientific research.
Instead of using diversity to promote a common humanity, they are using it to make students perpetually conscious of group membership. This increases the likelihood of ingroup bias. They are creating spaces, including residence halls, that are segregated by race or designated for the exclusive use of one particular group. This promotes distrust of and hostility toward members of different groups.
