CERTAINLY AS OPPOSED TO ADMINISTRATORS, WHO SHOULD BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD. OR BETTER YET, NOT HIRED. Faculty members need to reassert themselves as the people who direct discourse on campuses. “When the past academic year began, I warned that professors have ceded ground to a growing and powerful class of student-facing administrators who not only shape considerable academic discourse at colleges and universities but also are dangerous to the promotion of deliberative dialogue. Those administrators — in offices such as student life and residential education — are overwhelmingly liberal and have fostered the creation of a progressive and activist monoculture among students on many campuses with their extracurricular agenda-setting power.”

They add no value, and their positions should largely be eliminated.
