New Promotion Criteria for Faculty at Pomona College "Commitment to Diversity"

Hat tip Campus Reform

 "....the new language will ensure that faculty members must demonstrate a sufficient commitment to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” in order to be a successful candidate for tenure, promotion, or reappointment."

(Diversity of thought not included)

Even way back when I was a DEA agent, our annual performance evaluations included a box that read something like this: "Employee supports diversity, equal opportunity and affirmative action."

So now. if you are a teacher at Pomona College, you need to be committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.

As for commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, I don't know if it has to be in that particular order. For example, I recently wrote a letter to the UC Irvine Vice Provost-Vice Provost, mind you, in charge of the Office of Academic Equity, Diversion and Inclusion pointing out that in my view, Jewish students were not included in campus concerns over the safety and well-being of (certain) students. I note the order was somewhat different. Maybe that's why "inclusion" comes last in both universities.

But I digress.

My question is this: Why can't a teacher treat all students and co-workers with equal respect, keep his or her mouth shut, and do his or her job? Is that not sufficient? Apparently not.
