Just like most tech companies nowadays will brief hiring managers on how to scan resumes for clues to identify URMs (under-represented minorities) and TFs (technical females), I'm sure college admissions counselors get similar training by the diversity/inclusion/equity gurus on how to identify conservatives.
is THAT? And she is working as an ADMISSIONS COUNSELOR FOR CLEMSON?
I did not know you could lump all Repubilcans under one label. If so, then what do Democrats tout as their one label, if all are to be lumped together? It would be educational to know?
The Two Party Political System is dead in this country. Because, it appears, they will never respect, or be able to work with the other side in any kind of meaningful way ever again. Everything is just lobbing rocks at one another, carried out by the most extreme members of each party.
Can't really blame decent people of either party for not wanting to get involved with politics. It is sad.
I just e-mailed President Clement respectfully expressing my disgust with an admissions officer at my alma mater lacking insight and respect for me and the institution that employs her. If you feel the same way I suggest that you do the same. You can google and get the address.
american and anti-reason thought and I could not support this nonsense. I gave money to this university at one time but while it chooses to wallow in the mire of woke nonsense I cannot in good conscience do so. It's sad really... and those who support such craziness don't even see the irony in their inability to engage with rational thought. But such is the radicalization of our college institutions I suppose.
Plenty sufficient % is the answer. Colleges are essentially becoming a place to send a child for indoc into a radical leftist ideal. Clemson is no exception. They've made that patently obvious sadly. "Claiming to be wise they became fools..." is what comes to mind. Education, as it currently stands, is so corrupted by radical leftist ideals that I'm not sure it can recover. As a physician it pains me that the archetype of this madness, unfortunately, is seen today in medical schools, where the radical leftist agenda has people, who claim to care about both science and patients, forsaking both in the name of political correctness, to claim that the very scientifically clear notion of two genders is false, and that whatever the hell you wanna call yourself is what you are. Only mind-numbing truth denial can claim such.
Kids are smarter than you think doc. I had squirrelly Bio Science instructors laughing at the prospects of a mythical god in the sky in the 1980’s at Clemson. Did that indoctrinate me or make me immediately adopt an atheistic view? Not one bit. It only challenged me to study the works of brilliant authors like Astronomer Hugh Ross, and many others with conflicting views.
I have no idea the “woke percentage” either, but my daughter, who recently graduated from Clemson, now holds more conservative positions than I do, which scares the moderate in me. At least in liberal arts at Clemson it was her opinion (emphasis) profs were probably 80% or better coming from the woke/hard left viewpoint. What did she do? She bit her tongue, and got through and graduated with high honors. Did the hard left of her instructors indoctrinate her? No way in hades! They probably pushed her further in the opposite direction.
To reveal your political views to a professor or lawyer or doctor (someone you are counting on to help you) these days is just not a wise choice IMO. I hate the cancel culture times we live in. It should not be that way, but it is. But don’t underestimate young people and their ability to discern.
Don't you need to hit a minimum score on an IQ test to have this job? Not too smart to express such bias on a public site. This should impact her next performance evaluation. Openly expressing bias towards the applicants you are supposed to evaluate? Not smart.
Looks like Clemson is aware of this issue and has responded with:
"Associate Vice President for Strategic Communication Joe Galbraith told Campus Reform that Rozman’s statements “are not consistent with the admissions policies or practices” of the university.
“Admissions decisions are made by the leadership of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the views expressed on the personal social media channel of this individual – who does not make admissions decisions – are not consistent with the admissions policies or practices of Clemson University,” he explained."
“Clemson evaluates every application based upon the academic merits of the individual, and does not discriminate against or disadvantage any group of individuals – regardless of religion, race, gender, political affiliation or any other personal belief or identification,” Galbraith concluded."
I certainly hope the University talks with Ms. Rozman about being a professional and not letting her personal biases affect her job as they are inconsistent with University policy. If Ms. Rozman can't do that then she needs to find another place of employment...
