Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley railed against ‘biased’ colleges and universities at a forum hosted by the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C.

Haley, who is the founder of Stand for America, argued that colleges today have veered from their traditional purpose of educating students on how to think and come up with their own informed conclusions.

“Colleges and universities are there to allow people to figure out who they are,” said Haley.

“When we were all growing up and going through college, that’s when you found the power of your voice. That’s when you decided how you think and what you think and all that. Now it’s gotten to where colleges and universities – they don’t teach you how to think. They teach you what to think,” she said.

“When [students are] so fearful to speak out because it will hurt their grade or they’ll be ostracized within their classes, you’ve got a real problem,” Haley noted, citing a recent study that found conservatives on college campuses self censor three times as much as their liberal counterparts.
