Portland State University didn’t like a professor’s explanation of how his proposed “Conservative Political Thought” graduate course would “represent a broad diversity of voices” and be “culturally responsive.”

Those are Graduate Council requirements for new courses, and Bruce Gilley challenged their common academic interpretations in his application for the course.

The council rejected his proposal on Wednesday, citing the political science professor’s answers to the diversity sections on the new-course application. It also dinged Gilley because a librarian allegedly didn’t respond to his request to discuss what library resources he’d need for the course, another requirement.

It’s the latest snub by the public university toward Gilley (left), whom it previously investigated for “discrimination and harassment” after he wrote a journal article titled “The Case For Colonialism.”

Gilley has twice taught “Conservative Political Thought” under a course number associated with “Selected Topics,” meaning the subject changes in each section. “It is a crucial missing part of the political theory offerings of the department,” Gilley wrote in his application, which he shared with The College Fix Thursday. “The enrollment has justified a permanent course number.”
