    The Higher Education Thread

    Nicholas Kristof continues to earn respect by being willing to criticize his own ideological kind.

    The Dangers of Echo Chambers on Campus

    "We liberals are adept at pointing out the hypocrisies of Trump, but we should also address our own hypocrisy in terrain we govern, such as most universities: Too often, we embrace diversity of all kinds except for ideological. Repeated studies have found that about 10 percent of professors in the social sciences or the humanities are Republicans.

    "We champion tolerance, except for conservatives and evangelical Christians. We want to be inclusive of people who don’t look like us — so long as they think like us."

    The article doesn't mention any history of complaints in her 30 years of distinguished employment with the university. If that's the case, I would think a reasonable person would accept her apology and move on. But, neither professors nor lawyers have a stellar reputation for being reasonable.

    Don't know the context of this complaint, but the blackface and curly headed wig was in pretty bad taste, regardless of intent. I don't understand why it was important that somebody at the party indicate they were offended. How many people actually do that? It's a party. Bail out if you're offended. I'm not even faculty, and I feel an obligation to steer clear of any controversial ethnic or religious stuff. I've only heard a handful of anti-Mormon remarks over 18 years, and I shook my head.

    I thought the Stanford Band mocking BYU by portraying themselves as polygamists with three wives for every man was in bad taste, too.

    I wonder if we're on the cusp of a very strong anti-PC movement, nationally. Bring back the "real" America kind of thing. One of my colleagues, a research associate who happens to be Jewish, has been interviewing for jobs in Canada.

    "We Jews encounter serious resentment every 50 years or so. With the election, it's clear there's a lot of anger, people looking for scapegoats. Jews know we're not really white, just like Mormons should know that when push comes to shove, they're not really Christian, and with the Breitbart connection now in the White House, I'm not waiting for things to actually unravel. They're already crazy enough for me. My parents always made us watch anything they found about the Holocaust. 'Don't ever let this happen again'. For Jews, it's fight, or flight, or hunker down. The hunker down didn't work in Europe 70 years ago. I'm not sticking around".

    Hyper-sensitive liberal? Canary in the coalmine?

    She did say she felt fairly protected in Utah, and research jobs aren't exactly easy to get. We'll see what happens, but her Skymiles card is getting a workout.

    Jordan Peterson, hero of the anti-PC crowd, just keeps winning

    http://news.nationalpost.com/news/ca...-keeps-winning

    It wasn’t long ago that University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson’s future seemed somewhat in doubt. He rose to prominence — many would say notoriety — last autumn with his public refusal to use transgender and non-binary students’ pronouns of choice: “xe,” “zir” and “they,” for example. It was part of a multi-pronged YouTube campaign against political correctness and “compelled speech,” and against federal legislation that would make gender expression and gender identity prohibited grounds for discrimination.

    Check out our new video! "Who Killed the Liberal Arts?"

    What in the world happened to the liberal arts? A degree in the humanities used to transmit the knowledge and wisdom imbued in the works of great Western artists, writers, musicians and thinkers like Shakespeare and Mozart. But today, that same degree stresses Western racism, sexism, imperialism, and other ills and sins that reinforce a sense of victimhood and narcissism. So, what happened? Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute explains.

    I had a friend who worked at the BYUI who corroborated a lot of what I already thought.
    My daughter had several friend from high school who went there, and ditto.

    BYUI is a glorified high school. So, on one hand it doesn't really surprise me.

    On the other hand, academic positions are so hard to find, I would think that that a lot of momon MS/MA/PhDs would be chomping at the bit to get a gig at the BYUI if they can't get one at the BYUP.

    Put university in quotes, and I think it will all make sense.

    Males are enrolling in higher education at alarmingly low rates, and some colleges are working hard to reverse the trend.

    Nobody but poor ol' LA Ute posts in this thread anymore. It's gotten to the point that he refers to himself in the third person.

    Anyway, this is a well-written account of what he thinks is a serious problem:

    I'll bite. At first blush, I find the safe place stuff silly. However, I think we all ask for safe places in one way or another. I get really tired of hearing one guy who sits a row behind me at the football game say fuck in almost every sentence. After a a few minutes I have had enough and ask him to knock it off. In all fairness, I feel free to tell the guy who thinks he is the second coming of Vince Lombardi to get down on the sidelines and start calling in the plays and making the correct substitutions. I also tire of the assholes across the isle who make crude statements to BYU fans every time we play them and feel free to tell them that if they continue I will have the ushers remove them. I'm pretty sure I would do the same thing if they were making racist statements or denigrating jews. It's fine to make derogatory statements about ASU. ASU fans are the worst. So, I guess I have things that I don't want to hear.

    I would draw a distinction between speech that is generally considered offensive by just about any measure, on the one hand; and on the other, ideas or opinions that may be offensive to those who disagree.

    This article is a good tandem with the David Brooks column about the Post WWII Protestant order being replaced by the likes of Abbie Hoffman with the 60s/70s Meritocracy, which is now being attacked by Trump (and many others) who sow distrust in education and the educated.

    The salary structure where I work is very bottom line oriented. We (essentially) have a star system, where the best, brightest and most productive are well taken care of, and salaries lag for everyone else (especially after the Great Recession). I don't think it's an intentional policy - funding for academic research is brutally constrained and under threat - but the mantra is: "You never have perfect equity. You move in that direction over time, and if need be, you protect against stars leaving with pay adjustments".

    With all of our salary information as public knowledge, this presents tensions within my team. "You may be very smart, and work hard, and went to college. Good for you, but I have kids, too."

    My team is a microcosm of America, today. Even though we're within an academic institution, among this small sub-culture of IT folks who don't have / don't care for academic curiosity and pursuit, there is a populist disregard for education and distrust of the educated, based on the human instinct to retreat into self-interest when economic storm clouds are on the horizon.

    What you describe, if I am correctly understanding you, is a good description of our IT department. They are willfully obtuse and often indifferent about what faculty does, and how their policies and the inherent inefficiencies that accompany them affect the learning environment, largely to the detriment of students. Which is insanity, when you consider their jobs, along with my own, exists only and exclusively because the students exist. It's unfathomable how often they must be reminded they exist to serve the students.

    I wish there was a star system, where the best, brightest and most productive are well taken care of among faculty. I am better at what I do than 80 percent of my colleagues. It might sound boastful, but I don't care. There are far too many faculty who do nothing to upgrade their knowledge and skills, and mostly just survive year to year. But that star system will never happen. We are in a contract year. Our union has already put us in a strike position with untenable demands. If we go on strike it will be a long one.

    The bright side is, at least I am 'tenured' in a sense and not suffering as adjuncts in the US do. Actually, that is one of the reasons for the strike. To find a way to better protect our partial load and part-time faculty. The education system here has slowly been moving towards becoming more similar to the US, at least in demanding greater accreditation, for less pay and no job security. Education in North America is broken in many many ways.
