Mark Bauerlein joins the Martin Center on Thursday, February 10th for a presentation about how the growth of students’ power and moral authority on campus has led to both a decline in academic rigor and the elevation of social justice in American higher education. Bauerlein argues that the fault lies not with the students, but with the faculty members who have willingly ceded their own authority.

The presentation will take place during a luncheon at the Carolina Country Club in Raleigh, North Carolina.
