Anonymous Tips for ‘Bias’ at William and Mary? Yikes.

By on November 2, 2007

Check on John Leo’s “By The Way, Somebody Turned You In” over at Minding The Campus, regarding William and Mary’s anonymous bias reporting program:
William and Mary’s new and anonymous bias reporting system is so wrong-headed that it’s hard to know where to begin protesting it. Some anonymous reports are legitimate, as Eugene Volokh argues at the Volokh Conspiracy, but calling for a college’s entire student body to watch out for bias, and then turn in their fellow students or professors, is not a good idea…
This reminds me of George Washington U’s similarly creepy program that we fought years ago. You better believe FIRE is looking into this!
