White males are a now a MINORITY GROUP! Universities are setting targets to recruit more after numbers plummeted

Post by Thor on Sun Dec 09, 2018 6:16 am

Universities are setting targets to recruit more white male students after numbers fell so low that they were classed as a minority group.

Aston and Essex universities have pledged to boost numbers in their latest 'access plans' submitted to the Office for Students (OfS), the higher education regulator. Aston says it will focus its energies during 2019/20 on white males, black British students and women studying engineering and science-related subjects. Essex wants to increase the number of white men joining it and other local universities by two per cent.

Several universities, including Oxford, have previously launched campaigns to increase the intake of white, working-class men, but Aston and Essex are the first mainstream institutions to include white men in strategies to boost under-represented groups.

According to the Higher Education Statistics Agency data, white British students are in a minority at about ten per cent of institutions.

And on some courses, such as business, pharmacy and science-related degrees, more than 70 per cent of students are from ethnic minorities.

In 2016/17, 27 per cent of the UK undergraduate intake were white males, down from 30 per cent in 2007/08. At Aston, almost two-thirds of the current intake are non-white.

Why can't they just let people make up their own minds?

Actually Rags, is clear why less white men are in Universities and it has everything to do with their leftist policies on ethnic, gender quotas. Which is pushing white men to the bottom of the pile when it comes to being accepted to Universities.

So where the left set out to do something good, it only creates more problems

At least now they are recognising there ia a problem, though have clearly not been honest to the actual cause.

Are they refusing to let white men in, or are white men simply not applying?

They claim white men are not applying, but I really doubt that is the case Rags

Again Universities have to have quotas

This reminds me of the time, in the 70's, when Columbia University became aware that it was too Jewish. The actually started a drive to press for more Christians.

My son and many of his friends have applied for universities. He goes to a very good school though.
