Dean Delahunty Discusses Gender Roles on CBS Sunday Morning
To those of you who weren’t awake around 9:00 a.m. yesterday and watching CBS News (so, all of you), you missed out. CBS Sunday Morning aired a story on gender roles (shout out to Crozier) and how that affects college admissions and performance, and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Jennifer Delahunty was heavily featured.
It’s no secret that Kenyon accepts a higher percentage of men than women in order to maintain some semblance of a gender balance, as the Collegian reported last fall. The CBS piece also revisits Delahunty’s famous New York Times editorial from 2006, “To All The Girls I’ve Rejected.”
In the video, Delahunty says,
“There’s a kind of anti-intellectualism of young men that really bothers me. That it’s not cool to be smart. That it’s not cool to be engaged. That it’s not cool to do your homework. That bothers me.”
Whether she’s right or not (hint: she is) is up to you. I’m just here to tell you that your college administrators keep busy during the summer!
