Jonathan Haidt: Viewpoint Diversity on Campus

Jonathan Haidt is a psychologist and professor at New York University. His research includes a great deal of cutting edge work applying moral psychology to the study of politics and business ethics. Currently he is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership in the Stern School of business at NYU. Professor Haidt is concerned about the group think that is enveloping America’s great universities, and as a result he co-founded Heterodox Academy that works to increase viewpoint diversity. He has also been visiting university campuses discussing how the academe has become so monolithic in its outlook and what we can do about it.  One of the lectures he presented at Duke University in 2015 is in the video below. It should be watched by anyone who is concerned about the state of the nation’s universities.
