Special thanks to the University’s report on outcomes for alumni candidates. That report includes information about the alumni candidates who do not share or are actively hostile to our progressive principles. But it is gratifying to see that almost everyone on this list of those candidates who do share our values has won, even in this year of appallingly unexpected results.
