Colloquium: Professor is a Label that Leans to the Left

Colloquium: Professor is a Label that Leans to the Left

Everyone is invited to join us on selected Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. in Crabbe Library Room 201 for a hour of informal, moderated conversation over print, video or audio material on various topics selected by EKU faculty. Refreshments will be provided by EKU Student Government Association.

This week, Dr. Minh Nguyen will moderate discussion of Professor is a Label That Leans to the Left and Well, Naturally We’re Liberal:

The overwhelmingly liberal tilt of university professors has been explained by everything from outright bias to higher I.Q. scores. Now new research suggests that critics may have been asking the wrong question. Instead of looking at why most professors are liberal, they should ask why so many liberals — and so few conservatives — want to be professors.
