Univ of Illinois Requiring Faculty to Engage in Woke Diversity and Equity Activism, or Lose Jobs

The University of Illinois is requiring all faculty to engage in woke diversity and equity activism at the risk of losing their job.

According to The College Fix, while woke activism is approved and expected, it isn’t yet required. However, the school has written new rules that will make the activism required to attain tenure starting in 2026.

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has approved a policy that will require faculty to contribute to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts to earn tenure or a promotion. For now, it’s optional. In a few years, it’s a requirement, according to a policy dated March 26.

“The statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion activities will be optional for candidates through Academic Year 2024-2025, after which the Provost will move to make it a requirement,” it read.


The supplementary documents explained that DEI efforts do not have to be a “central part of every faculty member’s activities to merit promotion.” However, the provision encourages faculty to “plan their DEI activities as early in their careers as possible.”

Even if DEI need not be central to a faculty member’s activities, fulfilling the requirement still may turn out to be more than a matter of attending a workshop and checking a box, which raises questions about what happens to faculty who are critical of DEI or wish to remain neutral on the matter.

There is no reason whatever for this woke garbage to be part of a professor’s tenure track.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?
