Universities: Forced diversity? Nuanced judgment?

For weekend readers, two articles from me this week on the campus battles:

“Should Politicians Force Diversity at Universities?” Published by the Berens Foundation’s The Right Insight. Excerpt on politicized universities:

“Politicians must then choose either (1) to fail in their responsibilities to taxpayers by continuing to spend their money on educationally irresponsible institutions, or (2) to use their political power to interfere with or override the self-governance of universities.”

“Defining Free Speech on Campus.” Published in Toronto’s Metro newspaper (page 9). Excerpt on the sometimes-hysterical rhetoric:

“University should teach you to make nuanced judgments. If you think there are only your views, and everyone else is Hitler, then that’s a problem with you. You are not an educated mind yet.”
