IN THE SPRING of 2001, Loyola College placed a job advertisement. The school needed a new assistant vice president for academic affairs and diversity. The last word, "diversity," is the key. It signals that self-conscious, and sometimes tortured, American effort to include all kinds of people in the national mix.

The university publicized plans in November to replace associate provost for equity and diversity Cordell Black with a part-time administrator, effective June 30. The final decision fell to Nariman Farvardin, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, and spawned immediate protest, including a large November rally in support of Black's reinstatement.
