University of Florida Eliminates DEI Office, Fires All Employees

2024-03-01 14:00:13

The University of Florida immediately eliminated its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion office.

“To comply with the Florida Board of Governor’s regulation 9.016 on prohibited expenditures, the University of Florida has closed the Office of the Chief Diversity Officer, eliminated positions and administrative appointments, and halted DEI-focused contracts with outside vendors,” the university said in an email.

Those laid off “will receive 12 weeks of pay and will be encouraged to apply for other positions at the university.”

The school will use the $5 million for DEI on faculty recruitment.

Gov. Ron DeSantis banned public colleges and universities from using public funds on DEI budgets in May 2023.

The Florida Department of Education also banned spending on DEI programs and replaced a sociology class with an American History course.
