NOËLLE MCAFEE: “University Presidents and Administrators Can Learn A Lot from Student Demonstrations”

NOËLLE MCAFEE, professor and chair of the philosophy department at Emory University and president-elect of Emory’s university senate, writing in Scientific American: “If university presidents want to be on the right side of history, they should study how democracy works and the role that universities play in aiding democratic processes. They should see their job as foremost to educate their students to become engaged members of society—with the side benefit of furthering the democratic process itself. They should avoid doing anything that slows down or reverses democracy.” Read Professor McAfee’s complete commentary here.
