Diversity Questioned on Campus

Diversity Questioned on Campus

Republican lawmakers at the Wisconsin Capitol once again said they fear the University of Wisconsin is stifling free speech.

Lawmakers held an hours-long hearing yesterday to press for answers about the climate on UW campuses. UW President Jay Rothman defended the university, saying the school is open to all viewpoints. Rothman did tell lawmakers that the school will be dropping required diversity statements from the university’s hiring process, State Rep. Dave Murphy said that’s a good idea. Murphy said he doesn’t think the UW’s diversity efforts are showing any benefit.
