University of North Carolina Bans DEI Policies in Hiring
“The school’s Board of Governors voted to ban DEI statements from hiring and tenure decisions”
It’s amazing how quickly the backlash to DEI policies is taking shape.
The New York Post reports:
University of North Carolina cancels woke diversity in hiring
In a growing backlash against woke culture, the board of the University of North Carolina moved to ban diversity, equity and inclusion requirements from its hiring and promotion process this week.
The school’s Board of Governors voted to ban DEI statements from hiring and tenure decisions, according to a report.
The Chapel Hill-based school “shall neither solicit nor require an employee or applicant for academic admission or employment to affirmatively ascribe to or opine about beliefs, affiliations, ideals, or principles regarding matters of contemporary political debate or social action as a condition to admission, employment, or professional advancement,” according to the decision, made Thursday.
A non-profit that has been advocating for an end to DEI requirements in institutions across the country, took credit for the move.
Kenny Xu, president of Color Us United, said his group has been behind the push to abolish DEI at UNC’S medical school, and started a petition that now has 614 signatures.
The petition includes the statement, “I am deeply concerned about the indulgence of wokeness and DEI in the North Carolina medical system. It makes me feel like I am part of a radical social experiment, rather than a patient to be trusted and cared for.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
How nice. Now if the Board of Governors would grow a backbone and abolish the entire DEI department and administrators I’d be impressed
Interesting move for one of the most radically left universities in the country, and home of the Covid gain-of-function research by Barrick and Xi in 2014. Until I hear more about their gaining sanity, I will believe there must be a ulterior motive.
Wow, a university who is starting to emerge from the “woke” fog of disillusionment and irrational thinking! Amazing!
