"Diversity Officer" WTF

a major award                                                 

Robert Sellers is the taxpayer-funded administrator who has struck it rich, according to Michigan Capitol Confidential.

In his position as “vice provost for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer,” Sellers will collect a cool $385,000 per year — over $32,000 each month and over $7,400 each week.

The annual salary is just $15,000 less than the amount President Barack Obama brings to the executive residence of the White House each year.

Each year, Sellers will make $194,177 more than the salary of America’s highest-paid governor — Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania — as a diversity bureaucrat. He will make $250,208 more than the salary of the average state governor in the United States, which is $134,792. He will make $384,999 more than Michigan’s governor, Rick Snyder, who accepts a salary of $1 each year.

Sellers is in the top one percent in income among all workers in Michigan and in the top two percent among all workers in the entire United States.

The median household income in Michigan is $54,208 per year. [FULL LOAD OF CRAP]
WTF is a diversity officer?

When state budgets need to be cut the universities cry and scream that they have cut to the bone and there is nothing left. We have a professor in Georgia making over $600k and there are many that make $150-$200k.

Highest paid state officials in most states are the head coaches at the state universities.

Anon, at least Harbaugh brings some value to Michigan unlike a "Chief Diversity Officer".

C'mon, let's give him a break! After all, he has a BS in Psych from Howard, where he played football, and his PHD in Personality Psych from U-M. Plus he's associate faculty for their research center for Group Dynamics (can you say Community Organizer?) As the Psych Dept Chair, he gives lectures like “Inspiring the Minds of African-American Researchers: Yes I Can!”

So I'm SURE he's going to be fair and even handed to all kinds of diversity, even white kids. Worth every penny!

I didn't see any references to papers on that link - I assume that means that he has none (no professor who had published papers would NOT brag about it).

"Personality Psych"? I thought that Education degrees were light in the intellectual rigor!

"WTF is a Diversity Officer?"

Methinks it's akin to a "Vice-President in charge of Special Markets", which translates to "High Profile Person of Color" to provide highly-visible evidence of how "diverse" the organization is.
