Antioch College Closes its Doors
I have blogged previously about the sad case of Antioch College. This once outstanding liberal arts college has devolved since the 1960s from a bastion of free inquiry to an ideological "boot camp" of radical left orthodoxy, extreme even by the standards of contemporary academia. As a result, the college shed both students and faculty until only a few hundred true believers remained. This process of ideological self-selection has proven inadequate to the task of preserving Antioch as a viable institution.
In a post last week at Minding the Campus, Charlotte Allen confirmed the inevitable: Antioch has officially "shut its doors and laid off the last of its faculty members".
