  • Room: Renaissance Room

The issue of ideological diversity on college campuses has dominated the news in recent months. Writing in The New York Times, Nicholas Kristof observed, "Universities are the bedrock of progressive values, but the one kind of diversity that universities disregard is ideological and religious. We’re fine with people who don’t look like us, as long as they think like us...Universities should be a hubbub of the full range of political perspectives from A to Z, not just from V to Z. So maybe we progressives could take a brief break from attacking the other side and more broadly incorporate values that we supposedly cherish — like diversity — in our own dominions."

Mark Grabowski, Professor of Journalism at Adelphi University, will deliver a talk on ideological diversity on college campuses today. His talk will focus on viewpoint diversity among faculty members. Professor Grabowski is a member of the Heterodox Academy, a group dedicated to advancing ideological diversity on college campuses. He has written extensively on the topic and is a contributor to The Washington Examiner. He holds a law degree from Georgetown University and a bachelor's degree from Case Western Reserve University.

Brian Fitzpatrick, Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University, will provide commentary on the talk. Professor Fitzpatrick holds a law degree from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree from Notre Dame University.

This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Federalist Society. Lunch will be provided.
