Conditions on Campus for Conservatives

George Leef

Back in January, political science professor Matthew Woessner (Penn State-Harrisburg and a conservative) wrote an article that was published in the AAUP's magazine. The AAUP liked it, I suspect, because it largely downplayed the difficulties that conservative students and professors face on college campuses where leftists and their belief system predominate. In today's Pope Center Clarion Call, I respond to a number of Professor Woessner's observations.

I think that the situation for conservatives (I'd include libertarians and all other factions that dissent from leftist dogma) is worse than he does.
