Amid the growing movement of colleges allocating money to enforce political correctness, the University of Michigan is looking to hire a “bias incident prevention and response coordinator" who will — among other things — “enact cultural appropriation prevention initiatives."
The coordinator also must ensure that Expect Respect — a school campaign aimed at making the campus "inclusive and welcoming to conflicting ideas and diverse voices" — is introduced in orientation programs, according to a job posting on the college's website.
The full-time gig — which pays a starting salary in the range of $46,000 to $57,000 — also requires the coordinator to partner "with other campus and divisional social justice initiatives" and develop and maintain "strong working relationships with identity-based student organizations."
The coordinator will also provide "a safe listening space in which to offer compassion, support, and guidance to students" who are "experiencing bias and challenges associated with campus climate" and also assist "students in locating and obtaining emergency funding in crisis situations" and teach and coach "students to develop and demonstrate problem solving and self-advocacy skills."
Given the nature of the job, the coordinator should be prepared to "work unpredictable early morning, evening and weekend hours in response to the emergent needs of students and the campus community."
Recently, minority students at the school reportedly said they felt “marginalized” because of “imposing” and “masculine” wood paneling in a historic building on campus.
And a University of Michigan history professor noted in a May op-ed that 23-year-old pop singer Ariana Grande is better at handling counterterrorism than Secretary of Defense James Mattis.
