Campus Outrage Awards

The most shocking examples of political correctness in higher education were recognized in the Collegiate Networks 7th annual Campus Outrage Awards announced this spring. The dubious honors go to:

  1. "Sex Week at Yale," a student-sponsored use of school funds and facilities co-sponsored by a porn film company and featuring a porn star as a keynote speaker. This event tied for first place with "Gay Men of Color in Porn," a Chicano Studies thesis presented under the auspices of the University of California-Santa Barbaras taxpayer-funded "Race Matters Series."

  2. The illegal expenditure of $31,000 of mandatory student fees by the University of California-Berkeleys student government to defeat Proposition 54, an initiative to bar the state from collecting race data on school admissions forms.

  3. A false police report claiming racial hate crimes at Northwestern University. The student later confessed to police that his allegations of racial slurs and an attack at knifepoint were a hoax. No disciplinary action has been taken by the university.

  4. The Duke University philosophy department chairs justification of the 17-1 Democrat-to-Republican ratio among the schools professors on the ground that conservatives arent smart enough to get hired there. (See Education Reporter, May 2004.)

  5. A walkout by faculty and some students from the stage at the commencement of Georgetown University after the speaker, Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze, reiterated the Catholic Churchs teaching against homosexuality. The Catholic colleges dean followed up with an e-mail apology to students and an offer of counseling to students who suffered psychological trauma from the speech. (CNSNews.com, 4-1-04)
