The college media has taken note of FIRE’s recent case at the University of Delaware.
This morning, the University of Pennsylvania’s Daily Pennsylvanian ran a feature story on the controversy. And on Thursday, The Harvard Crimson ran a staff editorial critical of Delaware’s program. The Crimson staff wrote:
This is not the stuff of cultural cohesion. Rather, the program at the University of Delaware represents the worst mechanisms for building diversity on a college campus: Its methods were to victimize and criminalize, and its effects were to polarize.[…]We are relieved that the University of Delaware program has been halted. Other institutions must heed Delaware’s lesson and not fall prey to these sorts of unworthy polemics.
