EVENT: Why Do American Universities Lean So Far to the Left?

Conservatives are scarcer among college and university faculty than they are among any other major profession’s workforce. What are the historical, sociological, and philosophical causes of this imbalance? What consequences does it have for student life, pedagogy, and research? Have any effective means of restoring ideological pluralism on campus been found? Join AEI’s Benjamin Storey for a conversation with the Hoover Institution’s Peter Berkowitz and Azusa Pacific University’s Ethan Schrum on how understanding the ideological skew of America’s academia can inform efforts to restore the university’s role as an institution where the pursuit of knowledge can flourish.
