EP9: Are There Enough Conservatives in Academia? (On Whittington’s Case for Ideological Diversity)

Academia is often stereotyped as a radical left-wing institution. This is especially true among conservatives who even see universities as “Marxist indoctrination camps.” So much so, that many conservatives are turning their backs on the academy completely.

On this episode, we debate whether ideological diversity on campus matters. We consider the extent to which it is even true that ideological diversity is a problem on university campuses, and if it is, what the best ways to solve it might be.

For this episode, we read The Value of Ideological Diversity Among University Faculty by Keith E. Whittington. Matt also read Ideological Diversity by Neil Gross and Christopher Robertson.
