The far-Left attack on higher education continues to wrack up “successes.”
As Shift reported, a group of students “occupied” the front lobby of the Matteo Ricci College (MRC) — Seattle University’s college of humanities — back in May. They demanded the resignation of Jodi Kelly, the college’s dean.
The students demanded Kelly’s resignation because, according to their grammar/spelling error-filled online petition, the students felt “traumatized” by the “profoundly damaging” experience of reading classics. One student told a very liberal blog that the “humanities curriculum is based heavily on Western canon and European classic literature, i.e. stuff that old racist and sexist white guys wrote down.”
Unfortunately, in June, Seattle University has caved in to the demands of the rather pathetic students who said they felt “traumatized” by the “profoundly damaging” experience of reading classic literature. Interim Provost Bob Dullea placed Kelly on administrative leave.
Well, last week, Kelly’s leave became permanent when she retired.
So, in the end, the “traumatized” little terrors of academia got their way.
SPU has always been too precious for its students’ good. Remember when the head Jesuit praised the first Islamic terrorist attacks?
SPU is not Seattle University. What school are you referring to?
Right you are. Must have been typing too fast.

Shift needed to mention that some teachers voted against her in this battle ONLY because she was against unionizing. The book choice had nothing to do with it. Also, my hunch is she got a nice very nice severance package to leave and stay quiet.
Another victory for the Snowflakes!!
