Media Agency Refuses to Accredit University Unless It Teaches Future Journalists More Social Justice – Opinion

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill would like to be accredited as a conventional university. But unfortunately, the school isn’t sufficiently soaked in DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion).

It concerns Hussman School of Journalism and Media and its inadequateness in meeting the standards of Accrediting Council for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC). Certification must be renewed every six years. And an April 29th vote landed on the side of “Unapproved.” Only provisional status was granted, with another review scheduled two years out.

The council found that the journalism school was out of compliance with its standard involving diversity and inclusiveness… It also found issues of concern involving the council’s standard relating to mission, governance and administration.

UNC must be able to meet the identity quotas it sets for its recruitment and hiring. It also needs to teach journalists about social justice.

The council’s site team said the journalism school needs to continue to follow its diversity plan and initiatives in student and faculty retention and recruitment specifically. The school also needs to incorporate diversity and inclusion into its curriculum.

And if it doesn’t shape up, a ship-out could be upcoming:

If the school fails to follow its diversity initiatives and make a significant change involving diversity, equity and inclusion work at the end of the two years it has been allotted, the school’s accreditation could potentially be denied.

America was at one time ruled by colorblindness.

But recently, we’ve managed a 180 and gained ground at the speed of light.

We are now able to say: Do not discriminate by race.

The black keys and the white keys of the piano would have to be used in different rooms if they were created today.

As for curriculum, social justice appears to be education’s new core:

UNC Chapel Hill needs accreditation, according to The Daily Tar Heel

Hussman is an award-winning journalism school that has placed first overall in the Hearst Journalism Awards, a national competition that awards scholarships to students for “outstanding performance in college-level journalism,” eight times since 2002.

UNC must regain its full accreditation to be able to attract students and faculty. If the Hussman school lost accreditation, it would also pose major challenges to UNC’s reputation as the top public university in the south.

Whatever is embedded into the curriculum, might that affect the bias of America’s future media coverage?

I’d say we shouldn’t rule it out.

Will UNC teach journalism students the art of racial unity as well? Not necessarily; after all, it isn’t required.
