Conservative Faculty Banned at Hamline University?

by Nathan Harden

Today’s feature story at The College Fix highlights the case of Tom Emmer, a former Republican gubernatorial candidate, who says he was denied a teaching position at Minnesota’s Hamline University because of his political beliefs.

Emmer claims that after he reached an agreement with the university to teach a business class, members of the faculty organized a campaign to block his hiring. Allegedly, the opposition arose because his political positions were “incompatible with the university’s mission, specifically his stance on same-sex marriage.”
