University of California Math Prof Applicants Must Now Show Commitment to Diversity

University of California Math Prof Applicants Must Now Show Commitment to Diversity

“willingness to engage in activities that will advance our campus equity, diversity and inclusion goals”

Every discipline will eventually be required to kneel at the altar of progressivism. By doing this in the hiring process, they screen out anyone who isn’t willing to play along.

Campus Reform reports:

Calif. math prof applicants better have ‘diversity contributions’ on their resumes

Applicants looking to teach mathematics at the University of California campuses are evaluated based on their past contributions to “diversity.”

According to the current job postings for these positions, applications must include a “diversity statement” detailing the applicants’ “past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Several listings for tenure-track or tenured mathematics professor positions at University of California campuses included the stipulation, including listings for positions at UCLA, UC San Diego, and UC Irvine.

The University of California San Diego offers applicants a detailed explanation of how to construct such a statement, noting that the document should be one to two pages, and encouraging applicants “to provide specific information on the motivation, duration, and impact of their outreach and mentoring activities.”

“The purpose of the statement is to identify candidates who have the professional skills, experience, and/or willingness to engage in activities that will advance our campus equity, diversity and inclusion goals,” the university explains.

I’m confused. I thought math was racist. If they want to serve diversity, they should get rid of it entirely.

Universities have been doing this for years, which is why their faculties are mostly left-wing. Many of them have rated applicants on “commitment to diversity,” which means the acceptance and advocacy of “social justice” politics.

When I’ve advised conservative young colleagues on applying to these schools, the best advice has always been to make up a bunch of crap that will satisfy their PC enforcers. If the school is using irrelevant (and illegal) political criteria in hiring, the applicant should simply give them what they are asking for.

The truth is not in question (or even relevant) here. There are right answers and wrong answers, and (as in any exam), the applicant should simply give them the right answers that they want.

If even Math must be objectified, it will become odd Math.

(Did that even make sense? It sounded pithy, so I went for it. A spur-of-the-moment thing.)

That sounds like compelled speech.
