Colleges Still Recruiting for High-Paying DEI Administrator Positions

Colleges Still Recruiting for High-Paying DEI Administrator Positions

“Not only are college DEI jobs plentiful, but they can also compensate extremely well.”

This has turned into big business in higher education, and it most certainly contributes to tuition prices.

Campus Reform reports:

Colleges continue to recruit for high-paying DEI administrator positions

As colleges continue to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the classroom, the job market to promote such principles in higher education continues to skyrocket. Not only are college DEI jobs plentiful, but they can also compensate extremely well.

Upon searching the term “diversity” into the popular job search website, Careers Inside Higher Ed, nearly 25,000 job listings appear, with many DEI job opportunities willing to pay six-figure salaries.

One such listing is “Talent Diversity Champion” at the University of California, San Diego, with an annual salary of $100,000 to $130,000 to work primarily from home.

“[T]he Talent Diversity Champion is a technical leader who provides guidance to all levels throughout UC San Diego, utilizing specialized diversity, equity and inclusion expertise within area of responsibility to lead focused initiatives,” the job post states. The role also entails “developing and recommending strategies to establish diversity and inclusion as core values in talent acquisition, recruitment and retention initiatives and best practices.”

Similarly, Princeton University is looking to hire an “Assistant Vice President of Diversity, Belonging, and Well-Being,” for an annual salary of $230,000 to $250,000.

“Preferred candidates will possess an understanding of critical issues related to supporting and enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion, health and well-being, and should have considerable experience with a wide range of diversity topics (e.g., identity- race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, class, disability, faith, intersectionality, microaggressions, unconscious bias, and privilege),” the job listing reads.

Applicants should also have past experience successfully working with “diverse populations” and be an “advocate” for “anti-racism.”

Stanford University also has a job listing for an “Assistant Director for Diversity Recruitment and Partnerships” that can pay between $76,000 and $139,000.

In this role, one can expect to “develop and implement the school’s DEI recruitment goals” and help create a “diverse pipeline” in fields related to environmental sciences.

Until parents who pay, tax payers and alumni who support say no more, this will continue. No Uni wants to be seen as the first one to stop doing this as no high ranking member of a dictators inner circle wants to be seen as the first to stop applauding.

DEI is a grand con.

If the colleges are getting federal funds of any kind, a string imposed by the house to get that appropriated money could be no money can be expended by the school for DEI from any account, grant, gift etc.

Is your marriage inclusive? If so, can I boink your wife? No? Then I guess it’s not ‘inclusive’, its exclusive.

I presume most readers here work in office jobs. Do you carry a badge and go through a security check when coming into the office? Why is that? Because your office environment is exclusive, not inclusive.

Can I go onto the UCSD campus and start attending classes? No? Why, the campus is being exclusive aren’t they?

Private property has allowed the West to build a great amount of wealth. The fundamental notion of private property is that it is exclusive. You can tell others to get off.

Why has administration of college campuses included an ideological component in their administration efforts? Shouldn’t these DEI people be part of the faculty, in some subdivision of the Sociology Department? If not why not?

How about UCSD make their Physics Department part of the administration, where they force prospective Sociology professors to write statements on whether the universe is contracting or expanding. All prospective professors of Art History should be forced to write a statement on their view of the issue of quantum gravity, complete with the solution of differential equations, otherwise they may not be considered.

If DEI is such an academically important subject, give them faculty positions, not administrative positions. As it stands now, they are political commissars, which is anathema to the core of a university.

Every university would do its job better if it laid off a bunch of administrators, instead of hiring more.

There must be a “Dear Colleague” letter about DEI. You keep going with this garbage, you get no student loan money and no students. That would stop it, if there were the real will to do so on the part of DoE.

Has it not occurred to any of these universities that by establishing a Dept of DEI they are in effect saying that they are blatantly guilty of being non-diverse, non-inclusive and non-equitable. Why else the need to rectify? The only reason for these department is reinforcing that they have failed miserably at their task. They should have to show proof of their own racism and poor handling of young people in order to justify having to spend money and time correcting a problem that we all know doesn’t exist.
