All Woke Up: Promotions for the Woke


Want to climb the academic ladder at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign? You better be Woke.

The Office of the Provost recently announced that the “promotion and tenure process for tenure-stream faculty members” will serve to “reflect the evolving strategic priorities and current practices” of the university, according to Campus Reform.

The site informs professors interested in tenure opportunities that although they will “not be penalized if they are not doing DEI (Diversity Equity Inclusion) work,” they will “still need to prepare the DEI statement so that they can think about what they are already doing around DEI and what they will do in the future.”

In short, be DEI or your academic career will die — at least at the University of Illinois.

“For faculty who are currently heavily engaged in DEI efforts,” continues the statement, “this is an opportunity for them to share what they have been doing. Their DEI efforts will be considered as a strength in the evaluation process.”

According to the university, all faculty will eventually be “expected to make DEI efforts,” which will “be part of the evaluation process.”

Those who fail to go Woke need not apply.
