UW Diversity: It's Not Just About Free Speech

Glenn Ricketts

While free speech on a college campus may have been the high profile issue of the recent disruptions of guest speakers by students at UW/Madison, political scientist Bob Weissberg surveys the university's vast "diversity industry" at Minding the Campus and compares it to his remembrance of UW long ago and far away, during his days as a graduate student. Most "diversity" students, he observes, are at best marginally qualified, although some may succeed in obtaining a degree with the assistance of a ubiquitous support apparatus. Unfortunately, they actually learn little more than permanent dependancy and grievance.
