George Washington University to Host Event Explaining the Workings of ‘Christian Privilege’

On April 5, George Washington University will host a training session for students and faculty called “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!” It will present the idea that Christians “receive unmerited perks from institutions and systems all across our country.”

The event is hosted by GWU’s Multicultural Student Services Center. The online description explains that Christians live easier lives than non-Christians due to “built-in advantages.” This session will be one of 15 different free courses designed to equip students and staff with the skills to promote diversity and inclusion in different environments on and off campus.

Other workshops in the series include “heterosexual privilege,” “cisgender privilege,” “abled-bodied privilege” and “unconscious bias.” The Christian session will be hosted by Timothy Kane, the interim associate director for inclusion initiatives at GWU. He has a master’s degree in divinity and theology. (h/t The College Fix)
