It’s fair to say that college professors tend to lean liberal. So, almost 10 years ago, the University of Colorado Boulder embarked on an effort to counter that. It created the position of Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy. Since then, a number of conservatives have taught on campus, including John Eastman. Now, a House committee is looking into Eastman's role in the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Robert Pasnau is a philosophy professor at CU Boulder. He directed the conservative scholars program for eight years.
