    George Washington University has changed its course requirements for history major to no longer include U.S. history, the College Fix reports. The university’s history department recently introduced new requirements with the stated aim of giving students greater flexibility to pursue their interests, and to “better reflect a globalizing world,” according to faculty. Requirements in U.S., North American, and European history were eliminated, along with foreign language. Incoming history major will be required to take at least one introductory course, and may choose U.S. history as option. However, like many other universities, GWU allows incoming students to place out of the...

    A Resident Advisor at The George Washington University (GWU) has some choice words for the more than 1,000 residents of Thurston Hall, the largest freshman dormitory on campus. A bulletin board on the first floor of the dorm was decorated with the theme “Check Your Privilege." A statement included on the bottom of the board states “Becoming aware of privilege should not be viewed as a burden or source of guilt, but rather an opportunity to learn and be responsible so that we may work toward a more just and inclusive world.”

    The George Washington University art school recently co-hosted a three-day gathering to discuss how art can influence “social justice,” culminating with pleas for a “Muslim refugee” to serve as president. . . “Democracy is a beloved concept across the globe and in the United States, it is sacred. So much so that it generally goes unexamined as a practice,” a description for the workshop states. “It is a fundamentally exclusive process and therefore easily corruptible,” the summary then declares, asking, “How can artists, political leaders, community activists, and citizens respond with more inclusive models for decision making?”

    George Washington University President Steven Knapp issued a statement through his office after a flag controversy flared up at one of the university dorm halls. A student, who is Palestinian, hung a Palestinian flag outside his dorm room window at Shenkman Hall. It was reported to the administration police department because it was prohibited that an object be hung outside windows on campus. The student complied and the police officer wrote a report. But, what happened was that the report triggered an automatic warning letter to the student. The student believed he was being unduly singled out for having a...

    Hasan is a U.S.-born Muslim of Palestinian descent whose parents came to the United States from the West Bank. He joined the military after high school and earned medical degrees as he rose through the ranks, family members said. 'snip' Hasan attended the Muslim Community Center in Silver Spring and was "very devout," according to Faizul Khan, a former imam at the center. Khan said Hasan attended prayers at least once a day, seven days a week, often in his Army fatigues.

    In the Obama White House, the new adage “never let a crisis go to waste” has highlighted the President’s overwhelming domestic agenda. So much so, in fact, that it is clear the President is missing opportunities to make real changes, and is instead delivering empty promises, growing problems, and enlarging the national debt. Set against the backdrop of some $12 trillion in debt, the President is calling for even more spending in the form of health care reform, which the CBO estimates will cost upwards of $1 trillion. While health care reform is an important issue, the President has failed...

    More Teachable Moments by: Malcolm A. Kline, September 09, 2009 The latest poll from the Chronicle of Higher Education shows that conservatives make up only 15 percent of faculty and staff at surveyed colleges and universities while most polls show that more Americans than ever before are identifying themselves as right-leaning. Given this dearth of Tories, it is hardly surprising that in the Washington Post outlook section on Sunday August 30, 2009, found two profs—One from Occidental College and the other from Harvard—who observed that “Ted Kennedy passed the liberal torch to Obama” and then urged “Let’s run with it.”...

    Campus Peep Show by: Malcolm A. Kline, April 21, 2009 We don’t set out to cover the salacious but we’re on the education beat so what they do governs what we get to write about. Moreover, the prurient trend spills out into the popular culture. Hoyas Gone WildApparently, Georgetown University finds its Catholic in Name Only designation too restrictive. Even before the Jesuits that run it accommodated a visiting head of state by covering up a picture of Christ, the university observed Lent in a manner scarcely reminiscent of the original observance. Perhaps the denizens of Georgetown need to...

    Scenes from the Class Struggle by: Malcolm A. Kline, April 09, 2009 The class struggle is alive and well on campus from kindergarten through college, in so many ways. Republicans Need Not ApplyPresident Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel will deliver the commencement address at George Washington University. The commander-in-chief himself and his attorney general Eric Holder already spoke at GWU in March. You have to go back a long way to find a Bush Administration official given such easy access to the northwest Washington, D. C. campus. The neighborhood that the university is in is named, appropriately enough,...

    “Apparently to the College Democrats, making fun of Christianity, and specifically a memorial to aborted unborn children is humor. To me, it is flagrant, disrespectful and downright disgusting. The fact that these crosses remained displayed in the College Democrats’ office for over 24 hours just adds to the sheer lack of respect they have for Christians on campus.”- College Republican source, identity withheld for his protection pending investigationThis is a Pat exclusive.Back in October, The Washington Times reported on allegations of an ominous and potentially dangerous atmosphere of hostility and intolerance for campus Conservatives, free speech, and apparently now,...
