Unfair question

September 22, 2007

Re "What about Larry?" Opinion, Sept. 19

David E. Bernstein's Op-Ed on threats to academic freedom sure struck home. I recently earned a doctorate and am looking for jobs in California's university systems. The public universities (UC San Diego, UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton) invite the applicant to include "contributions to diversity" in his or her cover letter.

As a white female of conservative leanings, I haven't the faintest idea how to respond to what appears to be an ideological litmus test to screen applicants.
