Abstract/ Summary

From Duke to Stanford, and from UCLA to MIT to UW-Madison, a fire storm of debate has been ignited over the "politically correct" (or "PC") way to shape university policy on issues of racial, gender, academic and intellectual diversity. The so-called PC agenda on women's studies, ethnic studies, gay and lesbian issues, Eastern history, and the recruitment and retention of minority students and faculty has attracted considerable heat on may of our nation;s compuses - even though PC-ism occupies the attention of just a small miniority of individuals on both sides of the issue.
