The Context of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning

Abstract

Why don’t more liberals care about ideological imbalances on university faculties? The answer lies less in our “politics”--as traditionally understood--than in our professional culture, which privileges research over teaching. If we truly respected and embraced the teaching function, we would seek to expose our students to a wider array of faculty opinions. So long as teaching retains its low value, however, ideological diversity will not be valued either.
