    From time to time we like to highlight academic job ads as an indicator of how badly politicized our universities have become. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes the University of Oklahoma with a job ad so jaw-dropping bad that it sets a new standard. In this case, for a musical theater performance slot. The full ad is quite long, but I’ve excised some of the boilerplate employment language and highlighted the most egregious parts: Assistant Professor of Performance (tenure-track) Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre, University of Oklahoma The A. Max Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre...

    Two women’s volleyball coaches at the University of Oklahoma argue in a legal motion that they have the right to discipline players for their political beliefs. Player Kylee McLaughlin sued coaches Lindsey and Kyle Walton along with the OU Board of Regents earlier this year, alleging “she had been excluded from the team […] over her politically conservative views.” The OU Daily reported that McLaughlin, the OU team captain and first team All-Big 12 selection in 2018 and 2019, had made comments that “at least one” of her teammates considered “racist” following a team viewing of the Netflix documentary “13th.”...

    Campus Reform. ^ | June 16, 2021 | Alex Munguia
    An education nonprofit argues that in order to complete the training, students were compelled to answer questions in a way that agreed with the university’s position on transgenderism. The University of Oklahoma rejected FIRE's request to make its mandatory diversity training optional. The University of Oklahoma rejected an appeal from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, a nonprofit, to revise its mandatory diversity training. Recently, the FIRE discovered that the University of Oklahoma is forcing students to attend a virtual program that “required trainees to acknowledge their agreements with the university’s approved political viewpoints in order to complete the...

    A former University of Oklahoma volleyball player is suing the school, claiming that she was “frozen out” from the team due to her political beliefs. Kylee McLaughlin is suing the university and her former head coach Lindsey Gray-Walton and former assistant coach Kyle Walton. One of the complaints accuses the coaches of violating McLaughlin’s First Amendment rights. McLaughlin claims that last summer, the volleyball team watched a documentary called 13th, a show that deals with the issue of mass incarceration of blacks. After the viewing the team held a group discussion. McLaughlin stressed she felt “one hundred percent that slavery...

Hosted by the Delta Theta Sigma Alumnae Chapter, the contest encourages children from across Northern Virginia to display extraordinary oratorical and rhetoric skills in honor of Dr. King. He took the stage and made a presentation that he later came to regret. “I more or less expressed many of the ideas that had been...

    A Message From Tyrone Speller, Phi Delta Theta Chapter President At The University Of Oklahoma 03.11.2015 Oklahoma_Alpha This week, The University of Oklahoma has gone from being known as one of the most prestigious schools in the country to being unfairly characterized as a racist institution. The actions of the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity have deeply saddened me and the rest of the OU community, though I do not feel they represent the views of the entire OU Greek community and the University. As an African American male in the OU Greek community, I was recently elected...

    A sorority at the beleaguered University of Oklahoma has come under fire over its involvement in the racist chant by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity over the weekend. The Delta Delta Deltas have been identified as the sorority members on a chartered bus when frat brothers started singing 'there will never be a n**** in SAE.' At least one female student can be seen in the video. She appears to raise her cell phone to record the incident. Her date, however, can be seen clapping to the song. It is also believed that female voices can be heard cheering on...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Steve Davis, Oklahoma's starting quarterback when it won back-to-back national championships in the 1970s, was one of two people killed when a small aircraft smashed into three homes in northern Indiana, officials said Monday.

    Knocked flat on his back, Landry Jones took a swipe at the ball he'd just fumbled and did his best to keep it -- and the Red River Rivalry -- from getting away. Linebacker Jared Norton came rushing in with a chance to put No. 21 Texas in prime position for a tying touchdown, only to see the ball roll out of bounds. In control from the beginning, No. 8 Oklahoma was just happy to survive with a 28-20 win over its main rival Saturday.
