Conservatism ... in the Ivy League


The Boston Globe mentions Maggie as an example:

Brown’s Dean of the College Katherine Bergeron doesn’t see it quite that way. “There is a preponderance of progressive thinking on this campus,’’ she acknowledged. “But conservative students sit side by side with progressives in an environment that fosters’’ openness to ideas such as this course offering.

Bergeron pointed to the Janus Forum Lecture Series as an illustration of Brown’s commitment to open discourse. According to the university website, an upcoming lecture will address the impact of legalizing gay marriage; one of the speakers is Maggie Gallagher, a well-known conservative who opposes it. But beyond the lecture series, Bergeron could not cite any previous courses that specifically address conservative principles.
