Penn State’s New Faculty Hiring Policy on ‘Underrepresented Groups’ Skips Intellectual Diversity

Penn State’s New Faculty Hiring Policy on ‘Underrepresented Groups’ Skips Intellectual Diversity

“The new policy puts an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Higher education loves diversity, unless it involves thinking differently.

The College Fix reports:

Intellectual diversity missing from Penn State’s new faculty hiring policy on ‘underrepresented groups’

Pennsylvania State University is taking formal steps to increase the diversity of its faculty. But the new faculty hiring policy is largely skin-deep.

Academic organizations told The College Fix they were disappointed that the “landmark legislation,” as Penn State called it in a press release, gave no consideration to intellectual diversity.

At its last meeting of the school year April 28, the Faculty Senate updated its hiring policy, known as AC-13, for the first time since 1999. The new policy puts an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Twenty years later, the policy no longer effectively guides or accurately reflects hiring practices at Penn State,” reads the document, known as Appendix N, that explains the revisions to AC-13.

“In particular, AC-13 does not provide guidance to academic units about how to conduct faculty searches that attend to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion,” it says.

The revisions not only “align” the policy with the university’s “current practices and strategic goals” but also “add specificity” on matters such as the composition and responsibilities of search committees and their members, the document says.

While it refers to “underrepresented groups” as the target of outreach, the legislation only refers to specific groups in a section on “internal searches.” Those groups are “women, racial/ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, protected veterans, and members of other represented groups,” undefined.

The words “intellectual” and “view,” as in viewpoint, do not appear in either Appendix N or the press release.

But Penn State, the ‘Sanctuary City for Paedophiles’, requires their coaches to ‘broom and groom’ small children for the sexual debauchery of the university.

How much does Penn State, the ‘Sanctuary City for Paedophiles’ spend to continue their criminal child sex trade enterprise? JoePerv Paterno, whose paedophilia would cause Jeffrey Epstein to blush, for decades recruited and groomed young children for the sexual debauchery of well connected politicians, high ranking Paedophilia State administrators, and wealthy donors. Penn State, the ‘Sanctuary City for Paedophiles’, has for decades operated a child sex trafficking enterprise, grooming tens of thousands of innocent children for the sexual depravity of well connected politicians, wealthy donors, and high ranking university administrators. Penn State bribed former FBI Director Louis Freeh to whitewash the scandal, and then delivered several young boys to former Democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell for his hideous depravity in exchange for the early release of Pedophile State from NCAA sanctions. Newly unsealed documents revealed George Mitchell’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/08/new-details-in-unsealed-jeffrey-epstein-documents. Does the press possess the journalistic integrity to investigate the George Mitchell-Louis Freeh-Pedophile State-Joel Myers-Barry Myers international child sex trade operation?
