That’s what Rick Hess, director of education policy studies at AEI calls them in this article on NRO.

The absurd mania for “diversity” in higher education now has so many people dependent on it that Hess only sees things getting worse.

That money doesn’t provide any education, but it does enable university leaders to preen about their “commitment to diversity.”
