An alternative to ABoR 

The students of the Ithaca College Republicans have posted a four point plan to deal with intellectual diversity that does not include the Academic Bill of Rights.
The proposals include four sections. They first call for the college's long-range institutional plan to include "political ideology" as a type of diversity. Truly diverse coursework is proposed second, after an exploration of the college catalogue that leans to the left. Institution-sponsored speaking events have brought a variety of left-wing ideas to campus recently, and the third proposal asks for a wider spectrum of ideas and debates. Lastly, we propose a Center for the Study of Intellectual Diversity, which would closely parallel an existing center at Ithaca College that studies culture, race and ethnicity.
I'm hoping the report will be online soon -- so far their website is just in shell form.
