RocketKids Article

New College will host a daylong Global Liberty Institute symposium titled “Reversing the Ideological Capture of Universities and Institutions” in Mildred Sainer Pavilion, Saturday, June 1, from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. The event will feature five panel discussions exploring the extent of single-ideology takeovers at universities and major societal institutions, while focusing on solutions for restoring civil discourse and the free exchange of ideas.“Evidence-based discussion and function are increasingly contaminated by ideology in a wide array of institutions and public agencies,” said Scott W. Atlas, Robert Wesson Senior Fellow | Health Policy, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. “The overwhelming majority of universities have betrayed the public trust and in expertise overall by denying fact, spouting politicized opinion as university-endorsed thought, and now emphasizing ideology-based social policies as a guiding light for curriculum. This has damaged trust in institutions essential to a free society.” Panel topics include humanities, economics and data-driven inquiry, science and public health, law, and policies for reform. A ticket to the event costs $75 and includes a light continental breakfast, lunch, and admission to a post-event reception with complimentary heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online. New College student and faculty tickets are complimentary. Additional details about the event are available at NCF.edu.
