Liberals dominate college commencement ceremony speaking engagements, which is not a surprising trend, but one that has been constant for the past several years:
But even more concerning is the nationwide trend to promote liberal ideology and silence conservative viewpoints during commencement season. According to Young America’s Foundation’s annual surveys, there are upwards of 40 percent more liberal commencement speakers than conservative. Campus Reform reports that liberal speakers outnumbered conservative speakers 4 to 1 in 2016. The same group recently reported that among the Ivy League schools, none of the 2017 commencement speakers is an outspoken conservative, yet many are prominent liberals.
