Conservative Groups at the University of Denver Consider Disbanding Due to Persistent Harassment from Other Students
“Conversations with group members indicate that the liberal environment there has taken a steep toll.”
If these reports are accurate, conservatives are being bullied out of their student groups at the University of Denver.
From the College Fix:
Members of two conservative groups at the University of Denver say their organizations are likely disbanding after investigations by the university and pervasive harassment by fellow students have made the campus a “toxic environment” for their groups.
The school’s chapter of Young Americans for Freedom debated closing at the end of last year, with its members fearful that they would be unable to land jobs after being investigated for “hate speech” and labeled racists and white supremacists in, among other places, the school newspaper. The group remains on campus, but with severely reduced numbers.
The Federalist Society there, meanwhile, has dwindled to a single student, and is set to shut down at the end of the year when the last remaining member graduates. Pervasive bullying and concerns about being called racist induced many of its members to depart this year.
The university’s PR department told The College Fix that “both groups are still active on campus and have events coming up.” But conversations with group members indicate that the liberal environment there has taken a steep toll.
