The University of California, Santa Cruz is requiring job applicants for academic positions to submit statements affirming a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and filters applicants based on those statements.
Job postings for faculty positions on the UCSC website show the university initially filters candidates based on their “Statement of Contributions to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”
The article goes on to state the following:
All schools within the University of California system require faculty applicants to include statements of commitment to diversity and inclusion, but only UCSC expressly tells applicants that the “’initial screening of applications will be based’ on the statement.”
The UC document says “mentoring and advising of students and faculty members, particularly from underrepresented and underserved populations” will “be given due recognition in the teaching or service categories of the academic personnel process.”

The Examiner says diversity and inclusion statements “burst onto the scene in the UC System last decade and have since spread to cover 1/5th of all higher education hiring,” according to Max Eden, a research fellow in education policy at the American Enterprise Institute. Examples follow.
UCLA now requires all faculty to profess their faith in Leftist ‘diversity’ values. This is called ‘compelled speech’, and it’s ludicrously unconstitutional for an American public university to impose this kind of political litmus test before you’re allowed to teach. https://t.co/UgIpc0AoV5

New from @marksjo1 on the use of “diversity statements” as an entry stage hiring practice at universities, which represent an ideological litmus test designed to reinforce academia’s bubble. https://t.co/xYJbbmJX50
