The University of California-Santa Barbara is paying up to $57,000 a year for anLGBT program coordinator, according to Campus Reform. This is yet another LGBT position that can be found at public universities across the nation, highlighting the widespread reach of the LGBT lobby. To note, the $57,000 annual earning is below the Santa Barbara area’s median income, which sits over $65,000 a year, and it is also lower than the U.S.’s median income of $59,000.
Thecoordinatorwill focus on the creation of an “inclusive environment” to help “underrepresented, underserved, and marginalized students,” the job posting said. Included in this group of students are LGBT students, minority students (which liberals now call “students of color”) and those with “intersections of multiple identities.” The position also demands that the new hire serves as an “advocate for students who identify as LGBTQIA” to university staffers. In other words, the new hireis supposed to be an advocate for those with gender dysphoria issues, gender identity issues, and other issues.
The LGBT Center requires that the new hire work as a marketing strategist to help promote and increase awareness of the LGBT Center itself, in addition to creating programs to help the needs (political, social, emotional, and physical) for its “LGBTQIA community.”
As if that is not enough, the job posting says that the coordinator will mentor student groups that “focus on LGBTQIA identities,” and provide “transactional advising” to students in other student government or campus organizations. Recruitment of volunteers, as well as training them, also falls under the coordinator’s purview. The purpose of the training is to “ensure timely response to campus activism and outreach,” i.e. training a new wave of liberal and outspoken LGBT activists.
The University of California-Santa Barbara is not the first university to have a LGBT center on its campus, and it does not appear it will be the last one, either.
