The notion that the faculty of America's universities leans liberal has become commonplace knowledge. But until now, few have set out to find out just how liberal they are using objective data.
We analyzed the political contributions of faculty and staff at each institution to determine where America's top colleges stood on the Crowdpac spectrum. Here are the institutions with the most liberal Crowdpac scores:
- University of Michigan: 8.72 L
- UC Santa Barbara: 8.43 L
- University of Wisconsin: 8.41 L
- Cornell: 8.32 L
- Berkeley: 8.22 L
- Dartmouth: 8.02 L
