Students at the University of North Florida are vowing to stand up against the governor over diversity, equity and inclusion programs, known as DEI.

The vast majority of students in a student government poll said programs like the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Interfaith Center and the LGBTQ+ Center made their college experiences better.

Jacksonville Today obtained a copy of the survey results. Among them:

— 68% of respondents said DEI programs positively affect their college experience.

— 66% said the programs are “definitely not” discriminatory toward students.

— 73% strongly approve of classes about race, gender and diversity at UNF.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has vowed to cut spending on DEI programs until they “wither on the vine.” UNF students, in turn, implored university President Moez Limayem to not give in.

Why was only one POV included? A debate team has a for the proposition and against the proposition, and states the logic and the data, not just the sentiments.
