For Penn State student Josh Stulman, years of hard work ended in disappointment yesterday when the university cancelled his upcoming art exhibit for violation of Penn State's policies on nondiscrimination, harassment and hate.
Three days before his 10-piece exhibit — Portraits of Terror — was scheduled to open at the Patterson Building, Stulman (senior-painting and anthropology) received an e-mail message from the School of Visual Arts that said his exhibit on images of terrorism "did not promote cultural diversity" or "opportunities for democratic dialogue" and the display would be cancelled.
You apparently can't express an opinion about terrorism if it doesn't bow to the gods of diversity and tolerance. But I'm not surprised. I'm glad that I managed to escape academia years ago - with my values and intelligence intact. Read the whole article and see that Penn State's academic integrity has hit bottom.
