Conservatism 101

Aslinn Scott of the College Fix has a report on our friend Steve Hayward, as he prepares to become Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy at the University of Colorado:


Hayward said he hopes his selection will make a positive impact at the university in a number of ways, from leveling out academic disparity on campus to helping students get a broader academic experience.

Hayward noted that there are very few conservatives in academia, such as in the humanities departments in Yale and Berkeley. Likewise, CU Boulder lacks conservative scholars as well, he said.

“There are not many conservatives with academic credentials,” Hayward said. “Conservatives drop out of higher education.”
