University of Tennessee Re-establishes Controversial Diversity Office

Last year Tennessee’s Legislature removed all state funding for the Office of Diversity at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, after a series of controversial emails that promoted the use of made-up, gender-neutral pronouns and urged students to avoid words and activities associated with the Christian celebration of Christmas.

But legislators restored the money in this year’s budget, and the school announced this week that the office was being restarted with the hiring of a director for an LGBT pride center.
