Saving the integrity of the university

Diversity at university is insignificant when compared to the differences between university culture and civilian culture: a response to “Women’s rights or religious rights: which comes first?”

Here’s a pernicious idea: Universities are diverse societies, microcosms of our own diverse Canadian society. It’s nonsense, of course. Universities are as mono-cultural as institutions can be. But the idea that they are diverse societies has enough surface plausibility for it to have gained traction on campuses across the country and thereby to have begun to change universities for the worse.
