Public University Paying Professors to Go Woke

A public university in Tennessee is offering professors financial incentives to go woke.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The University of Memphis told faculty they could collect a $3,000 stipend for redesigning their curricula to align with the university’s commitment to “diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice,” according to an email sent to all faculty obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The offer is part of the university’s “Eradicating Systemic Racism and Promoting Social Justice Initiative.”

Interested faculty are asked to submit a copy of syllabi to be reworked as well as a 500-word “narrative” on their “diversity, equity, and inclusion philosophy” and how the new lessons will “address disparities” in their subject area.

The University of Memphis’s offer is part of a growing trend on college campuses, where the overt promotion of social justice has become the new norm. At Ohio’s Kenyon College, a small liberal arts school, professors can no longer receive tenure unless they can demonstrate “promotion of an inclusive classroom environment that values diversity.”

The stipend offer from a public university has triggered concerns from both faculty and lawmakers over use of taxpayer money. One faculty member who requested anonymity due to fear of retribution said the offer “makes you scratch your head” due to the school’s financial restraints.

A major concern is that courses that were once apolitical will be incentivized to turn into activism training grounds.

Well ALL federal funds should be withheld from these woke universities! This whole woke agenda TEACHES division and racism, while claiming to do the opposite. It is the destruction of our country as we know it.

Parents can be sure of a couple of things when their kids come home from college after the 1st Semester.
They will be woke, from their professors and their new found friends, and immediately they’ll tell you they know more than you do, and call you a racist!
We told ours. Come home with that attitude, find a way to pay your own way. That fixed it!

no it probably didn’t fix it, your child could be hiding it. Best way to fix it is not send them there in the first place . send them to a local trades school.

This means that college education is no longer worth a woke dime. How shameful to go around calling decent God-fearing people RACISTS! The real racists are the demented Marxist designers of the woke curricula.

The left uses the word “equity” because they think it will make people think they mean “equal” But that is not what equity means. What the left means is they want equity, or in essence reparations, for past wrongs. Of course they want to make these reparations from those who really had nothing to do with these past wrongs. This is unconstitutional and they know it. But if they can get away with it, they will buy more votes with taxpayer money.
