Activism on Campus

Today's campus tensions are ultimately rooted in the distortion of the fundamental institutional character of the academy by an increasingly hyperaggressive culture of activism. That culture is certainly formative - it shapes the students who come under its influence. But it is not itself sufficiently formed by the overarching purpose of the institution, and so it shapes those students in ways that answer to the broader culture war and not to the purpose of the university.
