With free inquiry on campuses across the country disappearing, alumni are withholding contributions as a sign of resistance (“Alumni Withhold Donations, Demand Colleges Enforce Free Speech,” The Wall Street Journal, Nov. 30). Who can blame them?
Tolerance for competing viewpoints is virtually nonexistent. As a result, indoctrination, rather than education, is seen by many alumni as endemic. They’re expressing their displeasure by the only thing colleges really respect. Whether the Alumni Free Speech Alliance will change things remains to be seen. But it’s a sign of the pushback that is slowly developing.
