Trackback - University Diversity

Brown University's president is concerned about "the lack of diversity of opinion on campus" quoted in Inside Higher Ed. Students have told her of a "chilling effect caused by the dominance of certain voices on the spectrum of moral and political thought," according to an account of the speech in The Brown Daily Herald.

David Horowitz cites the "near monopoly" of campus speakers from the left and the "one-sided nature of Brown's faculty," but applauded Simmons, saying: "Intellectual diversity is an endangered value on American campuses..."

Like, duh.

Hat tip to Michelle Malkin.

I am just glad that this situation is being addressed out in the open finally. For years no one discussed it.

I agree, college campuses tend to be more on the Liberal side. And it's just as well, if you ask me. With the recent extreme-right turn of the country, we must maintain at least one area of life in the US that will be able to voice dissent... or is the Right trying to set up a WASPy supremacist Christian theocracy in the Land of the Free without telling me?
