Faculty Diversity Proposal Fails at University of Washington




A proposal to study how to require faculty to show support for diversity, equity and inclusion has failed at the University of Washington.

The faculty senate failed to convince enough of its colleagues to support a discussion that professors submit proof of “contributions to the University’s DEI mission in promotion and tenure materials.”

The proposal earned 63 percent of the vote, but needed 66 percent to pass, according to an email from faculty senate chairs Chris Laws and Guatham Reddy.

“This is, for those of us who supported this effort, a very disappointing result – but it will not end our work to change our University and how we center the values of inclusivity, equity, and diversity in our promotion and tenure practices,” Reddy and Laws wrote in their email, obtained by The College Fix. The proposal passed the senate in May.
