Intellectual diversity

From Conservapedia

"If we want to broaden our intellectual horizons it's important to remember our natural tendency to drift towards and eventually connect with only likeminded people."[1]

With no internal diversity of intellectual views, students won’t really learn conservative arguments (and/or liberal ones, at conservative institutions), which harms all students because their positions are never tested and sharpened. [2]

"Mr. Mills does not have the answers to the problem of liberal bias at Bowdoin because he's not really convinced there is a problem. When he summarily dismissed me, the Tea Party movement, and Larry Summers, or reflexively embraced Nussbaum, or grossly understated the number of liberal faculty at Bowdoin, he demonstrated an unwillingness to take seriously the conservative perspective."[3]
