"Directors of Diversity," whether at colleges or large employers, are akin in function to the "Political Officers" that once permeated the former USSR.

I believe the Russian word is zampolit. If you've ever seen Enemy at the Gates, those were the guys with machine guns trained on the backs of the advancing infantrymen just in case they lacked the necessary intestinal fortitude or patriotic zeal. Oh, and also the guy Sean Connery kills in Red October at the beginning of the defection attempt, lest he rally the crew against the officers.
