Good News from the Campus

February 1977
National Review;2/4/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p138
The article presents information on the survey findings of the Carnegie Council for Policy Studies in Higher Education which indicate increased conservatism in U.S. college campuses. The percentage of students who call themselves left-of-center now number 35 percent and self-described conservatives have increased from 19 percent to 26. Support for affirmative action and other double-standard policies has declined. Students were certainly less radical in the late 1960s than the media suggested and than the demonstrations might have conveyed, and think they are less conservative than some of the sentiments people are expressing.
