“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.
