Pierson College Entrance
What do you know? Apparently there may actually be some limit to the politically correct insanity at Yale.
The Oldest College Daily reports that the Dean of Yale College put the kibosh on Pierson Head Stephen Davis’s latest grand gesture of inclusion.
Yale College Dean Marvin Chun said that while he is very excited by the conversations about how public art around campus can reflect Yaleâ€™s mission, he is also committed to historical preservation.
â€œIn the case of portraits on display in the residential colleges, I think itâ€™s important to keep them hanging, both for preserving the collegesâ€™ histories and for honoring the intentions of alumni, fellows and friends who generously commissioned these portraits,â€ Chun said. â€œThe two goals of reflecting Yaleâ€™s community today and honoring its past are not mutually exclusive.â€
One kind of suspects that some prominent alumni donor from Pierson College put in an angry phone call to Woodbridge Hall.
