The core question addressed by “DePaul professor slams liberal colleges as ‘gravest internal threat to this country’” (Web, July 25) is this: Can America’s colleges and universities be redeemed from identity politics, victimology and the campus social-justice warriors? Professor Jason Hill’s answer is no and his case is spot-on. So what do we do to save civil discourse and civic behavior on campus and beyond?
The practical solutions are simple and straightforward: for public colleges and universities, cut all federal funding both for the institutions and for student loans. For private colleges and universities, ask donors to look into their hearts and minds and ask, Is what I see really what I want to fund?
