Conservative Political Thought at the University of Colorado

There is a new Chair in Conservative Political Thought at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Among the questions that this stimulates are the following. 1) What are the qualification criteria for the potential occupants? Do they need to have academic degrees? Which ones?  2) How do they demonstrate their “conservativeness”? 3) Do they need to be registered Republicans? Is there a cutoff time for Republican registration? 4) To alleviate possible concerns about tokenism, has thought been given about ways to increase general administrative, faculty, and student Republican registration at the University?  5) Should the occupant of the Chair be rostered in or connected with a particular campus, academic department, or program ?
