A last group simply surrendered to their own fears.
Since , Cornell has continued to struggle with the dilemmas of a post-liberal university, witnessing threats to free speech, periodic conflicts over race-based dorms and programs, and related problems. If political correctness seems less of a problem today than it did in the s, this might be only because it has metastasized.
