What do Americans really think about affirmative action? How exactly did all those parents manage to bribe their kids’ way into elite colleges? What is in President Trump’s new executive order on free speech?
In this news edition of Curriculum Vitae, I sit down with Rachelle Peterson, Glenn Ricketts, and Dion Pierre from the NAS staff to discuss these questions, and more.
We also talk about four new assaults on individual professors by illiberal students, the ongoing calls for free college, three more colleges closing, more evidence of China’s undue influence over American higher education, and a new free speech and intellectual diversity bill in South Dakota.
I hope you enjoy our conversation—and if you spot a news story you think NAS members should hear more about, send it to us at [email protected].
