As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CAMPUSREFORM.ORG:

The Evergreen State College in Washington is preparing for a nearly-$6 million budget cut to compensate for an expected 20% decrease in enrollment next year.

The campus was engulfed in protests last year after a professor questioned the wisdom of a “Day of Absence” event that asked white students and faculty to leave campus for a day of diversity training.

The announcement comes nearly a year after the college was rattled by riots following former professor Bret Weinstein’s decision to question the school’s “day of absence,” which involved asking white students to leave the grounds for a day of off-campus programming while students of color participated in on-campus workshops.

The article goes on to state the following:

After besieging Weinstein in his classroom, student protesters proceeded to hold Bridges and several other administrators hostage in the president’s office, temporarily refusing even to let Bridges use the bathroom unless he agreed to adopt their demands for additional diversity-related initiatives.
