Tell us more about how liberal bias in academia is just a myth.
Campus Reform reports:
SUNY Albany only hosted two conservative speakers last year
A Campus Reform survey of the official State University of New York at Albany events revealed that the school only hosted two conservative speakers during the entire 2017-2018 academic year.
According to a catalogue of official events listed on the university’s calendar, there were a total 85 speakers who lectured on campus last year, including 64 who were determined to have either liberal or left-leaning political views.
By contrast, there were only 19 speakers who did not show a clear political or ideological preference or were independent.
The liberal-leaning majority included several former officials of the Obama Administration, including two Obama Environmental Protection Agency Regional directors, and Alan Bersin, former Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection in the Department of Homeland Security.
The largest speaker series of the academic year was titled “Telling the Truth in a Post-Truth World A multi-event symposium of topics crucial to an open democratic society,” and was hosted by the University and New York State Writers Institute.
The event featured dozens of guest speakers, including Kelley Vlahos, the Executive editor of The American Conservative Magazine, and a conservative commentator Richard Honen.
Other notable events hosted by the university included a discussion on “marginalized communities in 2017 America,” a lecture addressing “barriers to naturalization for low-income immigrants,” a talk on “gender and sexuality from a Jewish lens,” and more.
