Universities Are Trying To Teach Faculty How To Spot Microaggressions | HuffPo College

Earlier this year, University of California President Janet Napolitano invited deans and department heads to a seminar on inclusivity on campus. A large theme was how the university could better address microaggressions, the subtle comments, “slights” or “snubs” that signal bias against someone’s race, background or identity.

To better explain it, UC published a list of examples of microaggressions, and when commentators discovered it in June, they erupted in disapproval at the examples.

One UCLA professor wrote op-eds calling it “UC’s PC police.” A Los Angeles Times staff editorial criticized it as going too far. Bloomberg View columnists picked it apart as well.
