“place an emphasis on hiring faculty focusing on the intersectionality of Tribal sovereignty and computing within the CSE department”
This looks like nothing more than a giant virtue signal. How is the school supposed to control who applies for enrollment?
The College Fix reports:
Student government demands 24 percent American Indian enrollment
The University of Washington’s student government wants to see an American Indian enrollment quota of 24 percent by 2030.
The Associated Students of the University of Washington wrote a list of demands as a response to a professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department who refused to participate in a “land acknowledgment” requirement.
“I acknowledge that by the labor theory of property the Coast Salish people can claim historical ownership of almost none of the land currently occupied by the University of Washington,” Professor Stuart Reges wrote on his syllabus.
The ASUW wants to rectify the situation with a set of demands for the university.
The university must “commit to a 3% annual increase in the student population of Alaska Native/Native American students leading to a Alaska Native/Native American student population of at least 24% by 2030,” the resolution states.
UW officials should “place an emphasis on hiring faculty focusing on the intersectionality of Tribal sovereignty and computing within the CSE department.”
One student sponsor, Madison Truitt, said the 24 percent quota could include “people of mixed race” according to the minutes of the January 11 meeting.
The student government also wants more help for racial minorities. “BIPOC students need resources created by [black, indigenous and people of color] professionals to address the traumas inflicted by institutions and individuals,” the resolution says. The student leaders want increased recruitment of racial minorities, too.
