ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Students at the University of New Mexico may soon be required to take at least one class on diversity.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that a draft proposal by the Provost’s Diversity Council calls for a three-credit-hour diversity requirement that could go into effect in fall 2014. The class will be required for all students before graduation.

The council will seek approval from the Faculty Senate and other entities within the next few months. The Diversity Council, formed a year ago and composed of 22 students, faculty and staff, has been examining a potential three-credit-hour course requirement for several months.

President Bob Frank and Provost Chaouki Abdallah say they are on board with the proposal.

Students at many Southwestern universities already have such a requirement.
