Trinity College Promises New Diversity Hires and Microagression Training

Trinity College Promises New Diversity Hires and Microagression Training

“creating six such hires each year for the next three years to increase faculty diversity”

Notice that the goal here is not greater academic achievement. The priority is the left’s agenda.

Campus Reform reports:

Trinity College will make six new diversity hires each year, implement mandatory ‘unconscious bias,’ ‘microaggression’ training

Trinity College announced that it will hire six new “special opportunity hires” each year for the next three years, in an effort to increase staff diversity.

On November 2, Trinity College President Joanne Berger-Sweeney penned a letter to the community, providing an update on the school’s actions to “address systemic racism.”

First, Trinity created a Campus Climate Task Force “to assess our problems and to create a structure to address them.” Though nearly 300 individuals applied to work on the task force, only 28 were chosen.

The school also committed to “guidelines for Special Opportunity Hires,” which would commit the college to “creating six such hires each year for the next three years to increase faculty diversity” as part of the “normal allotment of faculty hires at Trinity.”

“Ideally, all of our faculty hiring and retention processes will support the college’s commitment to attracting and supporting a faculty that represents a broad spectrum of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and life experiences,” explained Berger-Sweeney. “The SOH initiative recognizes the need to accelerate these efforts. Our commitment to hire a more diverse faculty is universal, and we will hold ourselves accountable for doing so.”

The college also bolstered its “anti-racist education and programming.”

FWIW, this is Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

There is a bunch of places in the USA and elsewhere by the same name or similar:

At any rate, we’ll just throw this college’s list of silly moves onto the ever-growing pile. What time is the bonfire?

It’s all about the propaganda.

People can get the learning they need elsewhere without the multimillion-dollar brainwashing that they’ll have to pay for.

Is Trinity also raising their tuition costs to pay for this nonsense?

Will their six new “diversity” hires be made without discrimination on the basis of race or sex? Here is their nondiscrimination statement:

I was on the committee for a “diversity” hire in my own college, and I asked whether we would be abiding by the college’s nondiscrimination statement. You would think I had just farted in a crowded elevator. The doublespeak response I got basically translates to “Hell NO, you idiot. What do you think DIVERSITY means?”

“a faculty that represents a broad spectrum of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and life experiences”

Except, of course, for political opinion.
Treyf!!

Where are they going to find paying students who want to learn from these people they’ll hire?

I think I would like microaggression training. Teach me how to really, REALLY upset the delicate little flowers that seek reasons to be offended.
