Academia Steers Left 

George Will writes today about the dominance of universities by liberal professors. This is something many of us are already recognize. But what many people perhaps are not aware of is that this tide is being fought aggressively at George Mason University due to the efforts of Walter Williams. While he was Chairman of the economics department he amassed probably the greatest free-market team of professors in the nation, which includes the Nobel Prize winners James Buchanan and Vernon Smith.

Dr. Williams has also been active in attracting funders to the school. During GMU's latest fundraising drive the largest donation has come from the Charles G. Koch Foundation which in the past helped found the libertarian groups Citizens for a Sound Economy and The CATO Institute.
