Conservative Affirmative Action Nixed in SD

The South Dakota state Senate killed a bill yesterday that would have required the state’s universities to publish an annual report detailing how they are promoting intellectual diversity.

The bill was similar, but slightly less specific than the Academic Bill of Rights that “ideological diversity” impresario David Horowitz (see TDR 9/20/2004) has been promoting in a number of states. Inside Higher Ed has a more detailed analysis of the now-defeated legislation.
