ABSTRACT
The article highlights the decision of the Virginia Tech University administration to require faculty to report on their diversity activities. The author argues that throughout her several-decade higher education career, diversity activities cannot be viewed as those of a gadfly functioning on the margins. Rather, diversity must be addressed simultaneously with all of the institution's other high priority business.
