All it takes to be a conservative institution... 

The University of Chicago is hardly a conservative place. It is simply a place where conservatives are less likely to be harrassed (note that I very explicitly do not say a place where they are not harrassed). That is all you need in the academic racket to be perceived as a conservative institution.
By AtlanticBlog, who also notes an article on how some donors and their families are finding their endowments used for unapproved ends.
