We previously wrote about Anna Shireman-Grabowski, a Middlebury College student who, with non-student activists, removed a flag memorial on 9/11 this year remembering the victims of the World Trade Center attack, claiming solidarity with the Native American Abenaki tribe:

We ran this over at College Insurrection last week, but I think it’s worth running again an excerpt from Hen Mazzig, An Israeli Soldier to American Jews: Wake up!

As a young Israeli who had just completed five years of service in the IDF, I looked forward to my new job educating...

Want to know how we lost the campuses and a generation?  Because we allowed people like Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, one of the Duke Group of 88 professors, to indoctrinate our children:

At various points in his teaching or scholarship, Bonilla-Silva has used other names for the country of which he is a citizen. In his most...

On the surface, college dialogue seems to be all about  ’open-mindedness’ and ‘tolerance.’

To create this impression of a tolerant environment, many universities have “speech codes” that penalize politically incorrect speech, sometimes with severe consequences.

For instance,  Florida Atlantic University insists in vague terms that “every...

FIRST, you find out stuff before your friends.

Case in point, on Monday afternoon Leslie wrote Hamilton College sponsors “I Love Female Orgasm” workshop based on an obscure Facebook page we stumbled upon while researching the Hamilton segregation scandal.  The post was tweeted and shared on Facebook hundreds of times.

As Professor Jacobson details in his companion post, the Matthew Shepard narrative of anti-gay hatred culminating in murder may not be what it seems.

Research detailed in The Book of Matt by Stephen Jimenez casts doubt on the anti-gay part of the narrative.

But by now, the apparently-false narrative has become deeply...

It worked, as the campus erupted and the national...
