News & Record Publishes Column by Kent Chabotar
The Greensboro News & Record on May 27 published a column by President Kent Chabotar about how to support a diversity of ideas. The column is based on his charge to the graduating class at commencement.
“Seek out people with different beliefs,” he wrote. “People want to be around others who think and act like themselves. Imagine what a cataract of horrors it would be for some Harvard professors to be on the same faculty with a member of the tea party. But beyond that difficulty lies an opportunity for understanding and compromise. Imagine if the politicians in Washington could collaborate to get something done rather than demonize each other, spew half-truths, and bankrupt us all.”
