New research by a conservative website called CampusReform.org indicates that there is liberal political bias at Rice University.
The website recently completed an in-depth profile of the political climate at Rice as part of an ongoing project to research the nation’s top 100 universities.
“America’s colleges and universities are dominated by liberals, and Rice University is no different,” said Morton Blackwell, president of the Leadership Institute and founder of CampusReform.org. “Too often, the campus left uses its power to indoctrinate the next generation.”
According to their research, liberal student groups evenly match conservative groups four-to-four, but they pay graduate students to take courses in the Study of Women and Gender Department.
Rice’s faculty and staff gave 92 percent of their political donations to Democratic candidates in the 2008 presidential election, according to their report.
Director of News and Media Relations at Rice University B.J. Almond said the institution welcomes an exchange of ideas.
“Rice University is a nonpartisan institution that welcomes an open exchange of ideas, knowledge and opinions among its students and faculty,” Almond said.
