About Those Professor Watchlists

Brandon Inabinet

A conservative nonprofit organization has created a new website that lists college professors who are said to discriminate against conservative students and “advance leftist propaganda in the classroom.” In a story in The State newspaper, Furman communication studies professor Brandon Inabinet said that such lists do more harm than good, especially when teachers unfairly appear on the list because of misinformation. “If lists like this are used to find professors that agree with a student’s viewpoints, it really defeats the purpose of what a university is about,” said Inabinet, who also serves as president of the American Association of University Professors’ S.C. conference.
