If this kind of diversity deficit existed in any other way, it’d be considered a crisis.

Liberal professors outnumber conservatives 28-to-1 in region known for Ivy League

Diversity everywhere, except in political thought.

Sarah Lawrence College Prof. Samuel Abrams, a self-described moderate who “might as well have been Ted Cruz” at his elite liberal arts school, writes in The New York Times that the ideological skew in higher education is severe in most regions of the U.S.

And it’s nowhere more pronounced than in New England, home to half the Ivy League.

By running the numbers from 25 years of “ideological leanings” surveys by the Higher Education Research Institute, Abrams found that geography is the best predictor of a professor’s political orientation.

Though diversity of thought has become more common in Rocky Mountain-area colleges – down to 1.5-1 liberal-to-conservative faculty in 2014, from 2-to-1 in 1989 – the New England institutions have become a one-party state on the level of Russia:

In 1989, the number of liberals compared with conservatives on college campuses was about 2 to 1 nationwide; that figure was almost 5 to 1 for New England schools. By 2014, the national figure was 6 to 1; for those teaching in New England, the figure was 28 to 1.

Even the professoriate in the far west — the liberal “left coast” — saw the ratio of liberal to conservative professors jump only to 6 to 1, from about 3 to 1, during that time. Those teaching in other regions, from the Plains to the Southeast, saw far smaller changes, to 3 to 1, up from 1 to 1, on average.
