This story raises still more questions about the promotion and "sponsorship" of an "OutFOXED" political event by a St. Cloud State University Department. (SCSU receives a higher percentage of its annual operating budget from state taxpayers than does the Univeristy of Minnesota.)
- Are any funds of the HURL Department being used to sponsor this event?
- Is there not even one member of the HURL Department who might see departmental sponsorship of the "OutFOXed" event . . . and other advertised events . . . as being politically one-sided?
- If not, do we have an unhealthy lack of diversity of opinion in a sponsoring department that might be viewed by some as collectively locked together in "groupthink" - even to the extent of how grades should be awarded?
