Cybersecurity Professor Position at IUPUI Requires Commitment to Anti-Racism

Cybersecurity Professor Position at IUPUI Requires Commitment to Anti-Racism

“IUPUI condemns racism in all its forms and has taken an anti‐racist stance that moves beyond mere statements to interrogating its policies, procedures, and practices,”

Having something like this in the job description is a not-so-subtle way of saying not to bother applying if you don’t support the far left’s agenda.

The College Fix reports:

Indiana university’s cybersecurity professor position requires commitment to antiracism

A cybersecurity and engineering professor position at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis does not include just an understanding of how to build secure networks and combat foreign threats — it may also require an understanding of Ibram Kendi and Nikole Hannah-Jones’ work.

IUPUI’s assistant professor of cybersecurity job description asks applicants to take a firm commitment to antiracism. The job, housed in the engineering and technology department, is best suited for “candidates who will not only enhance our representational diversity but whose research, teaching, and community engagement efforts contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty.”

“IUPUI condemns racism in all its forms and has taken an anti‐racist stance that moves beyond mere statements to interrogating its policies, procedures, and practices,” the public university said. “We hope to identify individuals who will assist in our mission to dismantle racism so that everyone has the opportunity to succeed at IUPUI.”

The public Indiana university includes a similar demand for other posted positions, including a job as an assistant professor of occupational therapy.

IUPUI has an “Action Committee” tasked with combating racism on campus, a disease, it said, worse that coronavirus.

Its website starts with a quote from an activist and writer named Roxane Gay.

“Eventually, doctors will find a coronavirus vaccine, but [B]lack people will continue to wait, despite the futility of hope, for a cure for racism,” Gay said. “We will live with the knowledge that a hashtag is not a vaccine for white supremacy. We live with the knowledge that, still, no one is coming to save us. The rest of the world yearns to get back to normal. For [B]lack people, normal is the very thing from which we yearn to be free.”

Comments

Indiana University wants to identify and dismantle racism in all forms.

Ironic as Interim Provost and Executive Vice President John Applegate is a white male. The President Pamela Whitten is a white female.

Their leadership team is around 16 out of 18 white.
Only two people of color.

Why don’t most of them step down?

    “Why don’t most of them step down?”

    Because these white folks are the only ones qualified to tell the colored students they are oppressed. Otherwise, at least the ones taking real majors, might not notice.

“Eventually, doctors will find a coronavirus vaccine, but [B]lack people will continue to wait, despite the futility of hope, for a cure for racism”

Curiously, many of them continue to wait for a trustworthy cure for the coronavirus as well.

Remember, IUPUI created an alternate path to tenure just for minority faculty. It appears that IUPUI thinks that minority faculty are not capable of achieving tenure under the rules applied to white and Asian faculty.
