    Mediaite ^ | 30 April 2016 | Josh Feldman
    “The fact that some university boards and administrations now bow to pressure groups, and shield students from these ideas through safe spaces, code words, and trigger warnings, is in my view a terrible mistake. The whole purpose of college is to learn how to deal with difficult situations, not to run away from them. A microaggression is exactly that, micro.”

    Following a drop in students applying for housing, the University of Missouri will not be placing students in two dorms for the fall 2016 semester. Mizzou will be closing the Respect and Excellence halls (ironic names, given the circumstances) in order to utilize dorm space "in the most efficient manner" to keep costs down. In March, the university announced that it saw a sharp drop in admissions for the coming school year, and will have 1,500 fewer students. This will lead to a $32 million budget shortfall for the school, prompting the need to close the dorms in order to...

    The cupcake legions at the University of Tennessee of Chattanooga (UTC) are mobilizing against Hailey Puckett. She’s pure evil because she supports Donald Trump, and other members of the student council cannot stand it. Last week, Puckett, a student senator, was weathering calls for her resignation due to her political beliefs (via Campus Reform): Hailey Puckett, the senator in question, participated in a chalking campaign on her campus during which she and her peers scrawled pro-Trump messages on the sidewalks of UTC’s campus. "We do not support bigotry or hatred or the messages spread by Donald Trump’s ignorance." “Super proud...

    Haruka Weiser, 18, from Portland, Oregon, was a first year theater and dance student at The University of Texas in Austin. Weiser was reported missing Monday morning by her roommates and was found dead Tuesday in a creek that runs through UT's campus. Haruka had been walking back to her dorm from the drama building on campus when she was assaulted, then killed. On Friday, Austin police arrested Meechaiel Khalil Criner, a black, seventeen-year-old, homeless, six-foot-tall punk and charged him with first degree murder. Poor Haruka. A gorgeous, eighteen-year-old girl with big hopes and dreams gets raped, has her life...

McAdams said in a recent radio interview that he'll apologize, "When hell freezes over." The blog post in question sparked national headlines and a heated debate about academic freedom following the University's disciplinary actions against McAdams for exposing...

    The University of California System is frequently lauded as one of the best public-education systems in the world. But a scathing new state audit of the system tells a story of manipulation of admissions standards for financial gain, as the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The audit claims that the university knowingly admitted out-of-state-applicants with lower qualifications in an effort to boost income from increased tuition. "This report concludes that over the past several years, the university has undermined its commitment to resident students," the audit reads. "The university made substantial efforts to enroll nonresident students who pay significantly more tuition...

Chancellor Rebecca Blank recently announced university plans to accelerate “the hiring of additional student support counseling services … for student mental health issues related to diversity and climate.” She also mentioned plans to have incoming freshmen attend a newly designed “cultural competency” program that aims to rid students of their biases before future transgressions are committed against the university’s social minorities.

    The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV's "Judge Judy," is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A University of California committee agreed Wednesday to single out anti-Semitism as a form of intolerance that campus leaders should challenge but rejected a more far-reaching denouncement of arguments against Israel's right to exist. A year in the making, the formal position opposing anti-Semitic behavior comes amid a wave of impassioned campus activism that has sparked tensions between Palestinian rights supporters and strong allies of Israel. The committee of the university's governing Board of Regents voted unanimously to send what is being called a "Statement of Principles Against Intolerance" to the full board for consideration on...

    Trump University has been much in the news. A for-profit enterprise that went through several name changes and is still the target of a $40 million civil suit accusing Donald Trump of fraud, Trump U has become a centerpiece of attacks on Trump by his political opponents. The lawsuit and the attacks focus on the bait-and-switch tactics of Trump U. The folks who enrolled and paid substantial tuition thought they would get one thing and got another. They thought they would be learning some of Trump’s secrets to cashing in on the real estate market. They received instead some bromides...

    Anti-Donald Trump forces are expanding their offensive against the Republican front-runner, releasing a TV advertisement in Florida just days before the state's primary that spotlights a former Trump University salesman who says he was "ashamed" to work for the online school. In the 60-second ad, the employee, named Cliff, describes receiving "nonstop calls with complaints" from customers unhappy with Trump University services. He also talks about the school's low ratings from the Better Business Bureau. "I think I walked away from the job because I couldn't sleep at night," Cliff says.

    Lerach, who recently emerged from an almost two-year stretch in prison, is greatly responsible for this rigged game. As an attorney who filed hundreds of class-action suits against corporations, he became a bigger fraudster than a lot of the companies he was pursuing. First, he filed many dubious suits, rejoicing when 90 percent of the companies decided to settle for millions of dollars rather than spend the time and money fighting. That stratagem wasn’t illegal, but it was grossly unethical — the classic shakedown. Companies called it getting “Lerached.” Second, Lerach and his firms paid fat kickbacks to shifty characters...

    In the case of Trump University, the situation is even more disturbing. While Schneiderman’s investigation into Trump University first arose out of a larger inquiry into for-profit schools that accepted federal funding, his office quickly learned that neither Trump University nor its students had ever received any form of federal funding, subsidies or other government aid and offered all of its students a 3 day money back guarantee if they were not completely satisfied. Despite learning these facts, for the last two years, Schneiderman’s office has spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars conducting a no holds barred, scorched earth...

The California DREAM low-interest loans are designated for such immigrants who are enrolled at UC or Cal State University campuses. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the program into law in 2014, but funding didn't become available until last month. Zenen Jaimes Perez, policy analyst for United We Dream, the country's largest...

    WAYNE — An exorcism and a slap-down were part of a "cult-like" hazing activity in which students took on "alter egos" at William Paterson University in 2013, according to a state appeals court decision. The court described those activities by what was apparently a small, unofficial group of students in its ruling Monday, denying an appeal filed by two students, Jedediah Rockwell and Krishani Nadarajah, who were found responsible for hazing, and in one case, assault, by a university hearing board. Their appeal sought to overturn the results of the hearing. Both students were disciplined and one was suspended following...

    Does American University want to teach students about oppression, or does it want to subject them to it? Members of the Washington, D.C.-based private university’s faculty are engaged in the process of “reimagining” the university’s core curriculum: the courses that all students, regardless of major, must take in order to graduate. Core curriculums are a way for universities to make sure that everyone on campus absorbs a common set of skills and values deemed fundamental to a liberal arts education—they often include basic instruction in writing, history, and mathematical reasoning, for instance. American plans to modernize its curriculum by 2017,...

    Usually affirmative action diversicrats are sneaky enough to disguise their efforts to discriminate against targeted racial groups – almost always whites (because they are the majority) and Asians (because they study and work hard and achieve). They use code word language like “goals” and “diversity,” and avoid giving the impression that certain groups are ruled out from consideration. That’s what makes the honesty of a job posting at the state-funded University of Louisville so unusual.  Inside Higher Education (hat tip: Legal Insurrection) reports: can a department specifically reserve a position for an underrepresented minority candidate?

    The University of Maryland is sponsoring a poster campaign encouraging students to refer to illegal immigrants as “undocumented citizens.”The inaccurate term, first noted by Campus Reform, is promoted by the school’s “Inclusive Language Campaign,” which is throwing up posters around campus to encourage the use of friendlier language.UMD’s Multicultural Involvement and Community Advocacy office, an official organ of the university, is running the campaign. The posters tell students that “words have power” and people should be cautious, lest they offend people with the terms they use.“Would you say [illegal alien] if you knew I am an undocumented citizen?” the poster asks passersby.Nicole Mehta, the...

    The California college student who stabbed four people last month in a campus spree that ended when he was killed by campus police was described by his roommate as "an extreme Muslim" and carried a manifesto and a photocopy of an ISIS flag -- more than enough to convince John Price he was a terrorist. Yet, more than a month after the Nov. 4 attack at University of California Merced, local and federal authorities continue to insist that Faisal Mohammad, 18, carried out the vicious attack because he'd been banished from a study group. Price, whose son Byron Price, a...

    BOSSES at a Scots university are under pressure to strip Donald Trump of an honorary degree after he called for Muslims to be banned from America. Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen said their principal was "considering the position". Trump, who is leading the race to fight next year's presidential election for the Republicans, wants a "complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States". He says the ban should stay in place until the authorities can work out which of them are terrorists. Aides at first said the ban would apply to US citizens who happened to be abroad on holiday...

    A group of black student protesters at Emory University in Atlanta issued a hysterical list of strident “demands” — their word — to the university administration, and demanded that they respond by December 4, or else. You know the drill: race radicals say “jump,” university administrators say “how high?” I have posted the students’ entire list of demands below, as well as the university’s full response. Both are extraordinary documents that deserve full reading. The students’ demands are mostly a wish list written by spoiled brats, and the university’s response is a capitulation to them. I want to focus on...

    The Faith & Freedom Coalition, a conservative nonprofit group, has filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, Colorado State University, and a prominent fetal tissue supplier that seeks to force the return of state tax dollars that were used by the college to obtain aborted baby tissue for research. Nick McIntyre, the executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition of Colorado, told The Christian Post on Monday that his organization obtained records from the university through the Colorado Open Records Act that indicate the school paid thousands of tax dollars to obtain aborted baby tissue from the Planned Parenthood of...

    In the current issue of National Review, I have a piece called “Underground at Brown.” What’s it about? I’ll tell you. In fact, I’ll blow that piece out — i.e., expand it — here in Impromptus. At Brown University, in Providence, R.I., there is a secret forum in which students may discuss potentially controversial issues freely. Let me say that again: At Brown, there is a secret forum in which students may discuss potentially controversial issues — or anything they want — freely.

    As American youth regress toward an infantile state of development, one university president has finally had enough of the nonsense.  Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, had a wake-up call recently that prompted him to write an open letter to the student body. So what happened that caused him to speak out against this madness?  Per a report at TheBlaze: “This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt ‘victimized’ by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13,” Piper explained in his letter posted to the...
