Colorado School Names Conservative-Studies Professor By DOUGLAS BELKIN
The University of Colorado, Boulder, is the kind of campus that conservatives have long criticized as a bastion of liberal groupthink. That perception could start to change this year.
The school on Wednesday named Steven Hayward, a former fellow at the Heritage Foundation think tank, as its first visiting scholar of Conservative Thought and Policy. The position, which was funded with private donations and is among the first of its kind on a U.S. campus, was created to broaden the intellectual diversity among the faculty, said Earl Wright, a Denver banker who sat on the selection committee and helped fund the position.
"We want students to have a chance to understand a conservative, free-enterprise approach to public policy," Mr. Wright said. "I think it's underrepresented on the campus."

so you're saying you are biased?
We ain't never had us a 'conservative professor' round here before.
Not a live one anyway.
A “Conservative” Professor at most of these colleges would be a Trotskyite.
...taught by Michael Moore and Bill Ayres?
This is a positive development, although being named a "conservative" professor is like being named the "best woman (fill in the blank)". But it's a start. Try to be supportive here, freepers.
Rozek, who died in 2009, would be pleased that CU Boulder students will soon be able to study conservative thought and policy.
"Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."

My daughter goes to CU Boulder. It is a wonderful place. You seldom see teachers most classes like in most colleges today are taught by TA’s while the professors are getting research grants.
It is not has much the teachers but in every quad, the leftist students, more interested in politics approach and verbally attack virtually ever student that does not agree with their leftist cause. So it is peer to peer presure as opposed to adult to young adult and since I also have a teenage son - they never listen to what you say.
I go to a grocery store near a campus and when Greenpeace sends it members to the store doors and harass people as they go in and out you cannot believe the verbal abuse they hurl at you if you have no interest in saving the Brazilian rain forest.
“.....you cannot believe the verbal abuse they hurl at you....”
I hope you hurled some right back at these idiots.
The comments after that article are a real barf-bagger.
Read ‘em and vomit.
