In honor of our new Professor-in-Chief I thought I'd share some recent articles about recent books about recent studies showing professors have little influence over their students' political beliefs.

Professors’ Liberalism Contagious? Maybe Not by Patricia Cohen of the New York Times

Professors' Politics Don't Dominate the Classroom by Robin Wilson of the Chronicle of Higher Education

So feel free to express your enthusiasm about the election results to your students.
