2022 in Review: Higher Education Fellows' op-eds

The Leadership Institute’s Campus Reform launched its Higher Education Fellows program this year to elevate the voices of professors and college administrators concerned about academia’s leftward shift.

This year, Campus Reform launched the Higher Education Fellows program.

Fellows educate Campus Reform’s professional and student journalists, providing them insight and subject matter expertise from their fields of study. This program adds to Campus Reform’s resources to create and mentor the next generation of conservative journalists and media professionals.

Campus Reform’s Higher Education Fellows bring their unique experiences and perspectives to expand Campus Reform’s efforts to educate the public and raise awareness of higher education policies, initiatives, programs, and theories that promote political correctness, censorship, equity, and woke culture over truth, knowledge, and academic achievement.

Below is one op-ed from each of our 2022 Fellows.
