The University of Arizona is hiring “Social Justice Advocates” to turn residence halls into social justice learning facilities where any “bias incident” will be reported to the campus residence staff.

According to the job listing on the University of Arizona website, the Social Justice Advocates will be tasked with transforming residence halls into ways to learn about social justice. The Social Justice Advocates are instructed to institute monthly programming in the residence halls that “focus specifically on social justice issues – including the mosaic of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusivity,” put up bulletin boards in the hallways to remind people of social justice principles, and even hold twice-monthly social justice training sessions for the residence assistants, in collaboration with the already-established Assistant Director of Social Justice Education, to assess students’ “residents’ comfortability while in the halls.”

Part of students’ “comfortability while in the halls” allegedly includes reporting prospective “bias incidents” to the proper authorities.

The job expectations section of the job claims that, as part of being a Social Justice Advocate, employees are expected to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff.”

The requirements for the job, which pays $10 an hour, include having a “moderate knowledge and understanding of social justice issues,” be enrolled in at least six credits during the fall and spring semesters, and have a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Sorry, applications for the position are currently closed.
