Mizzou Considers Litmus Test For Profs’ Commitment to Social Justice
Academics? Not so much.
Devotion to progressive concepts like social justice has eclipsed academics on many college campuses. It’s truly sad. At Mizzou, your job could even depend on it.

Mizzou considers quizzing profs on social justice bona fides
As part of its $1.1 million diversity audit, the University of Missouri has released a preliminary round of suggested practices that would expand on the its commitment to diversity and inclusion.
The system announced its plan to scrounge up $1.1 million for a diversity audit back in May, at a time when the university was beginning to see the effects of a semester of racial uprising, experiencing a drop of 2,200 in enrollment while facing a $32 million financial hole…
Among the revisions are calls to implement a system-wide preferred name policy, which would extend beyond the school’s existing policy that allows students to be referred to by their preferred names on ID cards and diplomas.
Additionally, The Missourian reports that the diversity audit has also suggested expanding the definitions of both sexual misconduct and consent, though no specifics were mentioned.
Finally, the preliminary report indicates that the system is weighing whether to consider a professor’s contribution to diversity and inclusion in the tenure process—a requirement that has been adopted at at least two other colleges, Pomona College and Oregon State University.
Other schools, like the University of Cincinnati, now require prospective applicants to summarize their commitment to diversity before being considered for a position at the school.

Wait. Hasn’t Mizzou seen a terrific drop off in applications since becoming known as the most politically correct nuthouse in academia? And now they’ve decided to increase the PC craziness?
Yeah! That will fix it!
I wondered the very same thing when I saw the headline to the story.
There is no such thing as “social justice”, there is only justice, as Mizzou will discover very soon.
