The Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM) is seeking a new administrative team member in its medical education department. But, there’s one notable qualification: Candidates must declare their devotion to the DEI agenda with their applications.
In a public job posting, MSUCOM is in search of a faculty-level position with the title of “Assessment Specialist.” This role “supports the development of effective assessment methods” at the MSUCOM program to evaluate “the efficacy of curriculum design and delivery.”
In addition to the usual cover letter and CV, applicants are required to submit a “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) statement,” describing their “past experiences and contributions to inclusive excellence.” Successful contenders for this position will propose “ideas for future initiatives” in support of “MSUCOM’s commitment to inclusive excellence.” In other words, MSUCOM is screening applicants for their willingness to go along with the woke agenda.
The link included in the “Required Application Materials” section of the job posing is broken, but the MSUCOM Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives webpage is publicly accessible. Here applicants can browse the current and upcoming “Diversity, Inclusion, and Safety” projects, such as the MSU Dialogues events. A recent offering was the Decoloniality Dialogues Workshop Series, which invites administrators and staff to consider the “systemic harm and complicity that make up the fabric of colonizing universities.”
These programs are sponsored by MSUCOM and the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, which assists the College Curriculum Committee “to integrate principles of diversity and inclusion into the curriculum.” No doubt the new “assessment specialist” will be tapped to embed the indoctrination into the fabric of the Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine’s course materials.
Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, take note: Even the University of North Carolina no longer compels applicants, students, and faculty members to submit “DEI statements,” and at least six Florida medical schools say they won’t force Critical Race Theory onto anyone. MSUCOM needs to follow their lead and take a different path.
