A comprehensive higher education legislative proposal in Ohio to outlaw mandatory diversity, equity and inclusion trainings and statements, require intellectual diversity, and enact post-tenure review is making its way through the Ohio Statehouse.

State Sen. Jerry Cirino, S.B. 83’s primary sponsor, said he and his fellow Republicans have been “working the bill with our heart and soul,” and it’s expected to pass through the final committees in the next few weeks on its way to a full House vote in early December. It was approved by the Senate over the summer.
