Mandatory Diversity Training and Tuition Hikes for Loyola-Chicago Students

Well, there you have it; no such thing as a free lunch:

The interim president of Loyola University-Chicago isn’t waiting for his successor to decide whether students should be forced to take a diversity class.

John Pelissero, who took over the post at the Jesuit school in July, told the community he was swayed after meeting in December with an unregistered student group known as Loyola Black Voices.

Though Pelissero didn’t lay out how the university would pay for the new initiatives, students got a clue earlier this month: a 4 percent tuition increase next year for both incoming and current students.
