Animal Farm Meets College Hiring

The College is hiring new staff for its communications department. The job description is normal—works well with people, minimum three years experience, etc.—but just below it is a rather curious “equal-opportunity employer” disclaimer (emphasis added):

One of the most diverse institutions of higher education in New England, Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and has a strong commitment to diversity. In that spirit, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of people, including women, persons of color, persons with disabilities, and veterans.

This does seem to say that “all resumes are welcome, but some are more welcome than others.”

Those who are sufficiently diverse may send their resumes to Dana Yamashita of Dartmouth Public Affairs.
