In the wake of reports that the University of Minnesota Medical School had incoming students pledge to promote anti-racism and uproot white supremacy, the medical school has now acknowledged that it rewards faculty for promoting its left-wing diversity, equity, and inclusion agenda, and that it actively advocates for legal changes around that agenda.

According to a survey that University of Minnesota Medical School leaders completed earlier this year, the school’s tenure and promotion policies “specifically reward faculty scholarship and service on diversity, inclusion, and equity topics.” The school also reported that it advocates “policies and/or legislation at a local, state, or federal level” related to its DEI mission, and that its institutional leaders are “active within local, regional, and national forums” to promote DEI, according to the survey, obtained by National Review.
