University of Delaware backs down

This is likely only because of the heat they were feeling thanks to FIRE. But they have cancelled the program.
Late Thursday, University of Delaware President Patrick Harker released on the school’s website a Message to the University of Delaware Community terminating the university’s ideological reeducation program, which FIRE condemned as an exercise in thought reform. He stated, “I have directed that the program be stopped immediately. No further activities under the current framework will be conducted.” Harker also called for a “full and broad-based review” of the program’s practices and purposes. While concerns remain about the University of Delaware’s commitment to free expression, FIRE commends President Harker for his decision to immediately terminate the Orwellian residence life education program.

This is a victory. A small one, but hopefully these small victories will add up and the systematic moonbattization of academia can come to an end.

A big thumbs-up to FIRE. Make sure to show them your support.
