I read with interest Dean Prentice’s call for dispelling the “stereotype of Princeton as a privileged white male place.” Is this the best objective for our most prestigious of all universities? How about working to dispel our stereotype as a bastion of ultra-liberal thinking? Or is diversity limited to worrying about skin color and ethnicity, and nary a concern about the extinction of conservative thought in the lecture halls of McCosh?
