“liberal student causes were give 162 times more financial support at the public university than conservative ones”
When you look at the numbers, this wasn’t even close. What bias?
The College Fix reports:
U. Oregon student government gave $250,000 to liberal clubs, only $1,500 to conservative ones in 2017-18
A College Fix analysis of how the University of Oregon student government divided its cash coffers among campus groups during the 2017-18 school year found that liberal student clubs received $250,173 compared to conservative ones, which were only allocated $1,540.
Put another way, liberal student causes were give 162 times more financial support at the public university than conservative ones, a difference of 16,200 percent, the analysis found.
The Associated Students of the University of Oregon is funded by mandatory student fees, and distributed about $1.08 million dollars during the last school year, according to a copy of the budget obtained by The College Fix.
The analysis of that distribution shows the money is being used to support and promote left-wing activism in student programs and on campus.
“The most frustrating organization on this campus is ASUO,” University of Oregon College Republicans member McKenna Sjoden told the Daily Emerald in May. “Their bias towards left-leaning groups does not go unnoticed, and obtaining funds for anything is impossible for groups like College Republicans and Turning Point USA.”
The College Fix completed its analysis by breaking all the campus groups funded by the student government into eight categories: liberal, conservative, academic, cultural, religious, arts, philanthropy and miscellaneous.
