The Chronicle of Higher Education
February 5th, 2015
Conservative and libertarian scholars sounded triumphant notes here
on Thursday as they described the proliferation of college centers and
programs designed to expose undergraduates to their perspectives.
In many cases, establishing such centers at colleges has required
sidestepping faculty bodies and enticing the institutions’
administrations with the promise that the centers will bring in new
philanthropic support, according to a report on the centers’ progress that was the focus of discussions here.
"Money talks," said the report’s author, Jay Schalin, director of
policy analysis at the John William Pope Center for Higher Education
Policy, as he explained his findings at a luncheon gathering at the
libertarian Cato Institute.
