Not exactly "higher" education...

Hate in Their Midst:
"...a white supremacist Web site called Vanguard News Network (its motto is “No Jews. Just Right.') drew attention to an article in the Long Beach student paper about how some professors there want more distance between the institution and a psychology professor, Kevin MacDonald, who has applied evolutionary psychology to studying Jews in ways that scholars find offensive and inaccurate."
MacDonald argues — with backing from Vanguard News Network — that Jewish people band together, in part to undercut white society in the United States. He says that they do this in part by supporting immigrants, with the idea that letting more Latinos into the United States would advance Jewish interests by weakening the country.

Read the whole thing, and then wonder how such "scholarly" work can be permitted in a publicly funded university...
