Via an academic friend who wishes to remain anonymous:

'From ******** University's "Diversity of Human Experience" requirement guidelines: "In this scoring guide, 'diversity' refers to differences in ethnic, religious, and cultural perspectives, class, race, gender, age, sexual orientation and ability."

This term I had my students critique the university's stated educational requirements (alongside C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man). When we got to this sentence one student asked: "Is it just me, or would an Oxford comma be helpful here?"'
