U. Michigan Seeks New ‘Socially Just’ Administrator to Resolve Campus Conflicts

“embody the philosophies and principles of restorative justice, social justice, and conflict transformation”

The person will do so by battling things like microaggressions. Really.

Campus Reform reports:

UMich seeks ‘socially just’ admin to resolve student conflicts

The University of Michigan is hiring a mid-level administrator to promote “trust building,” facilitate “racial healing,” and fight “microaggressions” on campus.

The “Conflict Resolution Program Manager” will work in the school’s Office of Conflict Resolution, which helps students cope with “disagreement” among their classmates and peers “in a peaceful, socially just, and self-reflexive manner.”

Applicants for the position are expected to “embody the philosophies and principles of restorative justice, social justice, and conflict transformation,” as well as “expertise in working with diverse populations[…]with strong cultural competence.”

“Both you and the other person should be respectful and feel respected at all times during an argument,” the office’s website states. “If you can feel the tension rising in the room (e.g. escalated voices, inappropriate language) use your words to bring attention to this.”

In some cases, alternatively, the office advises that it “might be more constructive to walk away and return to the issue at a later time.”

Though the office appears to deal primarily with garden-variety student squabbles, the new staffer will work with an “emphasis on multicultural, LGBT, underrepresented, and underserved populations.”

To that end, the new Conflict Resolution Program Manager will be dispatched to work on a variety of goals, such as facilitating “racial and restorative justice programming;” responding to “trends relevant to diversity, inclusion, and equity;” and promoting “social justice.”

Makes me wanna puke …

If I were of college age today, I would think long and hard about what to do. If I had the grades and inclination to go into the sciences or mathematics, I’d choose carefully. Technology? I doubt it; the Indians run all that now, and they mostly hire their own.

Instead, I would learn a trade like auto mechanics, or electrician, or another of the trades. This keeps me out of the sort of nonsense described in the article, for one thing. Second, all those Indians need someone to maintain their Benzes and Lexii and Jags, so, why not make a living from them?

    You’re right about the Indian’s.

    I used to work for a huge engineering firm in SF. Even in the 1990’s there were tons of Indian’s (and Chinese) in some departments. Once one or two got into management it was game over for any other nationality. The end result? The good engineers left, the shit engineers remained and the company constantly got into hot water with clients due to shoddy engineering, bad communication, dishonesty and politics.

Is Torquemada available?
