Report finds Yale is liberal

In case Sex Week and naked runs through Bass didn’t make it obvious, Yale is a fairly liberal institution, a report by CampusReform.org has concluded.

CampusReform.org, a website devoted to fighting “leftist bias and abuse on college campuses,” researched the political climate at the top 100 universities in the country and counts Yale among those liberally-biased.

Yale has 19 liberal student groups compared to 14 conservative ones, and professors lean overwhelmingly towards the Democratic Party, giving 94% of their political donations to Democrats in the 2008 presidential elections, the report found.

The report further cited a News poll in which 67 percent of Yale undergraduates described themselves as liberal, 21 percent as moderate, and 12 percent as conservative.

CampusReform.org also considered the annual Sex Week and the Yale University Press’ decision to leave cartoons of the prophet Muhammad out of the book “The Cartoons that Shook the World” as further evidence of left-wing bias.
