Politics & Policy


We all know liberal professors outnumber conservative ones–but it’s always good to see actual evidence of the imbalance, which is what Alec Dent of The College Fix supplies with respect to UNC-Chapel Hill:

Professors registered as Democrats outnumber those registered as Republicans by a ratio of roughly 12 to one at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill – and in 15 departments zero registered Republican professors can be found – according to educators’ registered party affiliations.

Don’t worry, though. A UNC spokesman assures Dent that the school “does not hire faculty based upon their political affiliation.”
