CU-Boulder Raises $1M To Bring Conservative Guest Scholars To Campus

The University of Colorado's Boulder campus, long accused of being a bastion of liberal thought, will receive an injection of conservatism over the next three years thanks to $1 million in donations that will fund a series of right-leaning guest scholars.

CU's inaugural conservative scholar likely will begin teaching on campus in spring 2013 under a program that has struggled to gain momentum amid the recession.
