The University of Arizona is reportedly hiring “social justice advocates” to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff.”
According to the university’s website, the $10 an hour job will allow the “Social Justice Advocates” to become “recognized as a top percentile student leader on campus,” all for spying on their fellow students to make sure no “micro-aggressions” happen.
According to the job abstract, “Social Justice Advocates (SJA) will be responsible for instituting monthly programmatic efforts within the residence halls that focus specifically on social justice issues – including the mosaic of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusivity.”
Not only that but a SJA will “create an environment that enables Residence Life student leaders to dialogue around topics related to diversity, multiculturalism and social justice; Increase awareness and knowledge of diverse identities and how they influence interactions; Promote inclusive communities through positive interactions and increase resources available for staff on topics relating to diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice; Report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff.”
The SJA must also “have a moderate knowledge and understanding of social justice issues.”
“The position also aims to increase understanding of one’s own self through critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality, systems of socialization, cultural competency, and allyship as they pertain to the acknowledgement, understanding, and acceptance of differences,” reads the job description.
The University of Arizona is a publicly-funded institution.
