The U. of Colorado at Boulder says the new visiting scholar's position, supported entirely by private donations, will broaden the flagship's intellectual diversity and help counter a public perception that it is ideologically biased.

The University of Colorado at Boulder is adding a conservative-in-residence to its liberal-leaning faculty in an attempt to broaden intellectual diversity on the state's flagship campus.

The new position, the "visiting scholar in conservative thought and policy," is being paid for entirely with private money. A total of close to $1-million will finance the job, set to begin in the fall and to be housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, for at least three years.
