A Modest Suggestion for University Presidents

Speaking as one who has worked in the area of equal opportunity since 1974, I make this modest suggestion: 

The evidence does not indicate that your students, faculty members, and administrators need more training on diversity or sensitivity. For the most part, they have been marinated in those subjects. It is even possible that some of their previous training was so poorly done that it has produced your current problems.

What they really need are workshops on the United States Constitution, due process, and freedom of expression. 

One additional need: University administrators who don't cave in to intimidation.
