Universities have to be places where conservative views aren’t met with ‘abuse’

The hard-left attitudes littered throughout society have sprung from “within the ranks of university management,” according to Sky News host Chris Smith.

Mr Smith pointed to how only nine of Australia’s 42 universities have “embraced a code to protect free speech” on campus.

The universities who have ignored the code proposed by former chief justice Robert Fenech – commissioned by the government – included Monash University and Australian National University.

Sally Walker was appointed by the Morrison government to report on how well the universities were adopting the new code and on Wednesday released her findings where she urged universities to not just vocalise their commitment but institute tangible policies.

Mr Smith said it is imperative that universities are “places where supposed facts and norms are questioned” and where conservative views “aren’t met by abuse or bullying”.
