Why Are Professors Liberal and Why Do Conservatives Care?
Neil Gross talked about his book, Why Are Professors Liberal and Why Do Conservatives Care?, in which he examines why a majority of America’s college and university professors are liberal. In his book, the author reports that one reason for the disparity is that higher education was generally linked to liberal politics at the beginning of the 20th century and this alleged association steered conservatives away from pursuing careers in academia. Neil Gross spoke on a panel with Nicholas Lemann, professor and dean at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and Paul Starr, sociology and public affairs professor at Princeton University. The program was hosted by New York University in New York City. close
