Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) requires professors show a commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in order to be considered for promotions or tenure, according to a document titled “Example Faculty Activities Toward Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.”

TRENDING: Minds blown: Americans’ mental health plunges to lowest point ever

The document was obtained through a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA) by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm. It included a list of activities faculty can demonstrate during performance reviews to showcase their commitment toward advancing DEI at the school.

Do No Harm referred to the list as “compelled behavior” and claimed that “it is a thoroughly politicized and ideological creation, betraying IUSM’s complete commitment to race-based medicine.”

“It conveys a clear expectation that faculty hold that same commitment and prove it through their actions,” Do No Harm wrote.

One bullet point advised faculty to incorporate DEI into their classroom by using “inclusive teaching practices” which include using “global perspectives” and teaching courses in multiculturalism. It also instructed faculty to teach “courses, modules and/or workshops designed for historically marginalized students and trainees” as well as promote grants and fellowships which serve such communities.

It also advised faculty to incorporate DEI into their research through grants or projects which study health care in “historically marginalized” communities and by building diverse teams or partnering with faculty at Minority Serving Institutions. It also advised faculty to convey any awards or recognitions they received for DEI-related research.

Faculty can also score points by serving as a mentor for “underrepresented” and “international” students and faculty. It also listed several ways faculty can promote DEI in the community by “chairing or serving on a Community board linked to the advancement of DEI,” targeting community outreach to marginalized communities and engaging in “activities and consulting work (paid or unpaid) related to DEI community activities and organizations.”

“In each case, IUSM is indicating that current and prospective faculty need to hold not just specific political views, but translate those views into concrete action,” Do No Harm claimed. “This is a violation of medical educators’ rights. Here’s hoping a faculty member sues IUSM – or the Indiana state government intervenes. IUSM shouldn’t be allowed to force faculty to engage in political activities.”

Do No Harm and IUSM did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.

To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.

Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.

All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
