‘Diversity, inclusion and equity’ are destroying academia, conservative author warned

Canadian psychologist and author Jordan Peterson has announced that he is stepping down as a full professor at the University of Toronto, citing concerns about the shift in academia towards “Diversity, Inclusiveness and Equity Mandates,” that he likes “PASS AWAY.” The shortened term is one of the reasons for Peterson’s resignation, which he announced in a National Post article on Wednesday.

“The appalling ideology of diversity, inclusion and equity is tearing down education and business,” Peterson wrote.

The former teacher said he “love” his work and his students, but expressed frustration that his “Qualified and extremely well-educated white heterosexual graduate students … have a negligible chance of being offered academic research positions, despite stellar scientific records.”

Unattainable standards of diversity and political correctness affect both students and other staff. Peterson describes himself as “persona non grata” in his field because of his “unacceptable philosophical positions”.

“How can I accept potential researchers and train them in good conscience knowing that their employment prospects are minimal? he wrote, later adding that his colleagues “must write DIE statements” to get research grants today.

“They all lie” he said of many modern teachers, adding that they “teach their students to do the same.”

“They do it constantly, with various rationalizations and justifications, further corrupting what is already an incredibly corrupt company,” he added about several of his colleagues, lambasting teachers for suffering “the so-called anti-bias training.”

Accreditation boards of Canadian graduate training programs in clinical psychology will refuse accreditation programs unless they include a “Social Justice Orientation” according to Peterson.

“You support all DIE activists, whatever your reasons: it’s up to you” he added. “Curping cowardly into pretense and silence. Teach your students to conceal and lie. Get along well. As the walls crumble.

In a lengthy thread later posted to Twitter, Peterson pointed to students and faculty confirming his concerns about “wake-up” standards destroying academic standards.
