The religion of diversity in higher education is quickly eclipsing the value of the subject matter being taught and no discipline will be exempted.

Harvard engineering profs now required to submit diversity reports

New and current faculty at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are now required to submit reports detailing their involvement in “promoting diversity and inclusion.”

Unsatisfactory performance in that realm could affect faculty bonuses, according to The Harvard Crimson.

In addition, applicants for positions at the school must be equipped with a “diversity, inclusion, and belonging statement.”

Keeping with the academic tradition of the alleged benefits of diversity rather nebulous, Harvard SEAS Dean Francis J. Doyle III said in an interview “I have found [diversity] to be a very important thing that we want to use in our recruiting to, again, set the tone that we value this — we think it’s a priority.”

It’s “a very important thing.” Check.

Stupefyingly, Doyle said when it comes to handing out bonuses, diversity will be the main factor taken into consideration. “Other aspects of faculty members’ job performance” (like teaching quality, subject expertise) are secondary.
