Remember when the term “PC Police” just meant someone focused on correcting anything they deemed offensive? Now, the University of Michigan is actually hiring a “Bias Incident Prevention and Response Coordinator”.
As Campus Reform reports, a job posting on the school's website is seeking candidates for the full-time position and comes with a salary range of $46,000 - $57,000 a year.
The posting says that 40 per cent of the job will entail receiving campus reports of bias incidents and then reviewing them with designated campus and community partners for investigation and response.
So-called "bias incidents" often include controversial "micro aggressions" which can include something as mundane as using the wrong pronoun to refer to someone.

Twenty five per cent of the job will be enacting “cultural appropriation prevention initiatives” in addition to working “with other campus and divisional social justice initiatives” and developing “strong working relationships with identity-based student organizations”.
If that wasn't cringe-worthy enough, another part of the job is providing “a safe listening space in which to offer compassion, support, and guidance to students.”

In addition, applicants should be prepared to “work unpredictable early morning, evening and weekend hours in response to the emergent needs of students and the campus community.”
The job posting ends with a notice stating, “The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer”, because of course it is.
