Jefferson Huang, Ph.D.

How ideologically "conservative" is this smiling face in an educational place?

Just how ideologically "conservative" was/is this smiling face in an educational place[1]?

For many years (1995-2019) he was "Vice President, Student Affairs, Admission, and Financial Aid" of Clarmont McKenna College (CMC), concerning which Wikipedia says: "CMC is known for its faculty's conservative political orientation relative to comparable liberal arts colleges".[3] His doctoral disseration's title is: "The Ethical Lives of College Students in the Digital Age". The ERIC synposis of it says:

"I conducted original research projects and discovered the following: (1) Piracy and plagiarism are commonplace."

So Dr. Huang was a latter day member of the pedagogico-colonial regime in that educational Saigon (St. Paul's Illiberal Day Carcel for Pubescent Male Virgins except-for-omerta-sanitary-services-for-jocks), where I (BMcC[18-11-46-503]) had been a one-student insurgency against such things as "the cult of school spirit"?

Instead of ferreting out how students can cheat on often just busy-work / meaningless-to-themselves assignments[2], couldn't you have been verifying how it is not possible for anyone, student, parent, faculty member or other, to cheat on original creative endeavor, Dr. Huang?

If we eliminate temptations for students to cheat and offer them learning opportunities that will straightforwardly appeal to them (virtue as its own reward), then there should be little need to suppress them doing bad things like cheating → to try to avoid bad things they don't want, such as "bad grades", or to try to get badgood things they would want, such as "honors". Or am I wrong there, Sir?

  1. This is an allusion to a certain black Civil Rights Leader's description of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Justice Clarence Thomas as: "a black face in a high place with whom many black people do not identify".

  3. +2022.12.06. This is bizarre. I am listening to an interview on Youtube of an obvious conservative, Heather MacDonald, author of "The diversity delusion". She is telling how at Clarmont McKenna she had to be escorted by police to enter a building where she was scheduled to give a lecture, nobody attended because the students were protesting her being a white racist and blocked the door, so the police eventually escorted her back out for her safety. This is supposedly a conservative school? It should be obvious that I strongly disagree with Dr Huang on a broad range of issues. But I also strongly disagree with the radical anti-racist (I do not consider them to be "leftist") students. If the enemy of my enemy is my friend, like Roosevelt and Stalin in World War II, might there be common ground for conservatives such as Dr. Huang and an anarcho-syndicalist like myself to fight aganst a common enemy, call it what you will, but I sometimse call it "Wokism"? If the world of learning is destroyed there won't be anything left of what either of us wants, or am I missing something here? (See also: here)
Single occupancy male urinal. Amenity necessary for personal modesty and dignity StP did not provide for us students. What was their objective?
Scarlet letter worn by varsity jocks. Who knows what they did in their knotty pine paneled "Monogram Club" man cave behind the study hall room in the attic of the upper school building?
