UofA Hires "Social Justice Advocates" To Police Fellow Students For "Bias Incidents"

Administrators at the University of Arizona are now accepting applications for “social justice advocates,” whose job it is to snitch on other students accused of bias. They’re also expected to hold educational programs about “the mosaic of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusivity” and maintain “social justice bulletin boards” in student residence halls.

The job, which officially calls (archived link) for the advocates to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff,” pays the student workers $10 an hour. They’re expected to work 15 hours a week, which means they could be making as much as $600 a month to police their fellow students.

 

Part of the job description reads:

 

Quote

“The position also aims to increase understanding of one’s own self through critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality, systems of socialization, cultural competency and allyship as they pertain to the acknowledgement, understanding and acceptance of differences. Finally, this position intends to increase a student staff member’s ability to openly lead conversations, discuss differences and confront diversely insensitive behavior.”

The core responsibility, however, is to report bias claims. Bias incidents, which in recent years are increasingly being policed on college campuses, can range from outright acts of racism to far more subtle “microaggressions” such as referring to someone as a “guy” or wearing dreadlocks while white.

 

The social justice advocate’s job will also be, according to the job posting, to foster dialogue “related to diversity, multiculturalism and social justice”. Furthermore, the advocates will be tasked with “increasing awareness of diverse identities” and are expected to “promote inclusive communities.”

 

Lastly, these wildcats are expected to “be punctual in all position-related functions and tasks”.

 

 

The University of Arizona is a public school, and so these positions are funded with taxpayer dollars. At least until the state legislature reads about it.

End result, any conservative thought or action sees you dragged out and left on the street

60+ years fighting segregation across the board, a worthy goal, and now the progressive actually want it wrt politics. Sounds like their skin is so thin they can't hold their own without armor plating. The very definition of "snowflakes."

Is it even legal to have a censorship police in a public "education" institution?

/sigh .... 

 

I've had the Diversity class and it was the complete opposite of this madness. In fact, my Professor was really great. All issues were discussed and all viewpoints were welcomed.

 

We also talked at length about this "extremism" going on at other Universities; and it was universally agreed (even by the Professor -- who was female and African-American) that none of it was warranted, helpful, or even useful in the slightest bit. She called the idea of "Students and Staff engaging in the practice of Cultural Policing to be repulsive and something that we only hear about in places like Saudi Arabia and Iran. And that's where it needs to stay.".

 

Are we living in the inverse of the 1960's or what. Good grief.
