One “intellectual diversity ombudsman” at each public college and university in Missouri would cost at least $2 million per year in salaries and benefits. Add the salaries and costs of support staff and the figure approaches $5 million per year.

It sure would be nice to see where these figures are coming from. According to Wikipedia, there are 14 public, four-year colleges and universities. This would indicate that the ombuds would earn nearly $143,000 per annum in salary and benefits.
