Meet the public university that actually has a surprisingly high number of Republican professors

East Carolina University appears to offer an ideological balance among professors  

Finding an academic department at any given public or liberal arts campus across America that has more Republican professors than Democrat ones is truly a rare occurrence, like stumbling across the proverbial needle in a haystack.

So the fact that East Carolina University’s finance department boasts more Republican professors than Democrat ones is a rare find. Indeed, public data show there are seven registered Republican professors and five registered Democrat ones in the department.

But wait, there’s more.

The nutritional science department has four Republicans compared to five Democrats – not a bad spread – and East Carolina University’s physical therapy department has an equal number of Republican and Democrat professors – tied at three apiece.

Overall at East Carolina University, looking up some 196 professors across 10 departments found 33 percent of the educators are registered Democrat and 15 percent are registered Republican: a ratio of 2 to 1, with 65 Democrats to 30 Republicans.

In comparison, the typical public or liberal arts campus usually sees Democrat professors outnumber Republican ones with a ratio of anywhere from 10 to 1 to 25 to 1.

Consider at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, professors registered as Democrats outnumber those registered as Republicans by a ratio of roughly 12 to one — and in 17 departments zero registered Republican professors could be found.

And Davidson College, an elite private university in North Carolina, has zero registered Republicans teaching in its political science department, and what’s more, only six percent of the professors campuswide are registered Republican, research by The College Fix found.
