The Surprising Revolt at the Most Liberal College in the Country

The Surprising Revolt at the Most Liberal College in the Country

November 06, 2017

At Reed College, a small liberal-arts school in Portland, Oregon, a 39-year-old Saturday Night Live skit recently caused an uproar over cultural appropriation. In the classic Steve Martin skit, he performs a goofy song, “King Tut,” meant to satirize a Tutankhamun exhibit touring the U.S. and to criticize the commercialization of Egyptian culture. You could say that his critique is weak; that his humor is lame; that his dance moves are unintentionally offensive or downright racist. All of that, and more, was debated in a humanities course at Reed. But many students found the video so egregious that they opposed its very presence in class.

DePerro Inaugurated as St. Bonaventure President

DePerro Inaugurated as St. Bonaventure President

November 06, 2017

Moments after the St. Bonaventure University's presidential medallion was placed around Dr. Dennis DePerro’s neck Friday as he formally became the school’s leader, he spoke about the legacy he hopes to leave behind.   
DePerro admitted that legacy probably won’t be raising grand, on-campus structures and cutting ribbons, but rather rebuilding and reinvigorating infrastructure so the university can celebrate its bicentennial in 2058 and provide a Catholic, Franciscan education for years to come.
