The Right take on higher education.

Good News at Virginia Tech


That National Association of Scholars and Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) have issued press releases announcing that Virginia Tech has backed off its policy of requiring faculty candidates for promotion and tenure to demonstrate their contributions to “diversity.” Both organizations, as well as the Association of College Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), had challenged the policy; the editors of Virginia Tech’s student newspaper had also called on the school to rescind it.  So, nice job all around!
