Campus culture wars: Is psychology at the front lines?

Campus culture wars bear implications not only for interpreting new orientations to the role of universities and the cultivating of intellectual life but also broader sociopolitical, economic, and psychological conditions of the current era. In this trio of papers, the authors explore how psychology might inform, mitigate, or be implicated in campus culture wars, what the conflict might mean for psychology both within and outside the academy, and how the structures and functions of universities contain and sustain attitudes and values symptomatic of wider social ills that are sources of the discontent.
