“When Identity Trumps Diversity”

That is the headline at Inside Higher Ed. What do you all make of this story? (Be sure to read it all.) Calvin has a denominational requirement, the faculty member wanted to be part of a black Baptist church and they said no. Her tenure is being revoked.

When a professor asked for an exemption to a Calvin College
policy so she could join a black church — while remaining a
tenure-track faculty member — the board said no.

What do you think? Is this a reasonable requirement for Calvin? Should they have made an exception for Isom? Should they not have the requirement at all?
