Student Leaders at UT Austin Plan to Shame Professors Who Shun Diversity Traning

“we will implement a training tag system that shows which professors have undergone inclusivity training”

This is right out of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. The next step is parading the professors before angry student mobs and making them wear dunce caps.

The College Fix reports:

Student leaders plan to name and shame professors who shun diversity training

The newly elected student body president and vice president at UT-Austin, who are set to take the helm for the 2019-20 school year, ran on a platform that pledged to out professors who are not keen on taking the wide swath of diversity lessons the university offers.

Prior to the election, Camron Goodman and Amie Jean, the president and vice president elect, told the campus community that “we will implement a training tag system that shows which professors have undergone inclusivity training by identifiable tags on the course schedules and syllabi. This will provide students with more transparency about the learning environment and encourage professors to proudly undergo trainings and further means by which they connect with students.”

“Encourage” professors. Sure, that’s one way of putting it.

Lists of any kind, whether kept by the Left or the Right, often make people shudder. Some in Austin already are over this development.

Mark Pulliam, a UT Austin watchdog, put it this way.

“My main concern is the notion that professors (and staff) should have to disclose to students whether they have taken ‘diversity and inclusion’ sensitivity training (and similar classes), thus shaming those who have not and signaling solidarity by those who have. Branding faculty as either ‘with the program’ or ‘not cooperating’ has a whiff of Orwell,” he told The College Fix.

Welcome to the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.

I had to go through all that crap at two different colleges when I was teaching. Sometimes the indoctrination is labeled “optional,” but everyone knows it’s never really optional (or no one would go to it).

The best course of action is to keep your head down, make sure you sign in to the course, keep your mouth shut, and read a good book so you don’t have to listen to all their bulls–t. These are not places where diversity of thought is welcome. If you don’t keep your mouth shut, you will be consumed by the Mob. Remember, you were warned.

    We had an indoctrination seminar of the worst kind last year. An unqualified SJW that checked a few boxes who literally turned around and read paragraphs off of her slides.

    We received an email a few days before from the President that said, “I hope you can make it.”

    We were later told in a department meeting that it meant you are required to be there barring emergency.

So how, exactly, are they going to find out which instructors have taken the courses? That’s personnel data they shouldn’t have access to as students.
