“create a policy that includes a range of disciplinary actions”
Something like this has been needed across the country for years. People often forget that there are other students who are actually trying to get an education.
Campus Reform reports:
Indiana Senate passes bill restricting tenure for profs who push political views on students, punishing students for disruptive protests
The Indiana Senate passed a massive higher education bill that would require colleges to implement disciplinary policies for disruptive protesters and also restricts tenure.
Indiana Senate Bill 202 was passed on Tuesday by a vote of 39-9 on party lines and was authored by Republican Indiana State Sens. Spencer Deery, Rep. Jeff Raatz and Tyler Johnson.
The bill would require public universities in the state to “create a policy that includes a range of disciplinary actions” for any member of the community who ”materially and substantially disrupts the protected expressive activity of another employee, student, student organization, or contractor of the state educational institution.”
If passed, the bill would require each of the state’s public colleges and universities to create a policy preventing tenure or promotion to faculty members who are “unlikely to foster a culture of free inquiry, free expression, and intellectual diversity within the institution,” and “unlikely to expose students to scholarly works from a variety of political or ideological frameworks that may exist within and are applicable to the faculty member’s academic discipline.”
Under the bill, faculty who “subjects students to political or ideological views and opinions that are unrelated to the faculty member’s academic discipline” will also not be granted promotion or tenure.
Additionally, the bill would prohibit colleges and universities from requiring applicants for employment from pledging their allegiance to a certain set of policies, politics, or ideological movements.
Each public college and university in the state would also be required to submit data about their DEI budget allocations.
