UT is not merely focused on guaranteeing equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in hiring and promotion, but is instead implementing an “equality-of-results” identity-politics model.

Last fall, a working copy of the University of Texas’ “Faculty Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion – Strategic Plan” was leaked by a UT employee.

As detailed in an earlier National Association of Scholars article, this plan included political litmus tests for hiring, promotion, and even scholarship. As the article concluded:
