At University of Vermont, Liberal Account for 86% of Campus Speakers

Looks like the University of Vermont doesn’t have equal representation of political views at on-campus events between conservatives and liberals:

A Campus Reform survey of official events at the University of Vermont has found that the public institution hosted only two conservative speakers during the 2016-2017 academic year.

The review looked at the university’s official event calendars (found here and here) and determined that 51 speakers either addressed controversial topics or were known for their political involvement, thus placing them within the parameters of the survey.

The events range from teach-ins on Inauguration Day to school commencement ceremonies, and while some speakers were experts in areas of public policy—mostly environmental issues or foreign relations—others were politicians speaking on non-partisan subjects.
