- The Idaho State Board of Education announced Tuesday that it would not permit four-year public universities to consider applicants’ diversity statements during the hiring process.
- The board unanimously voted to bar universities from “requesting or requiring” a written statement that outlines an applicant’s commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), according to an announcement.
- The ban will take effect immediately and was voted on because the statements permit officials to consider factors outside of merit.
