Bill Ayers has been named a "visiting scholar" at the Minnesota State University Moorhead, the school announced late last month.

The Weather Underground co-founder will be the 2013 College of Education and Human Services Visiting Scholar. He gave a talk at the university last month titled "Teaching from the Heart: Education for Enlightenment and Freedom."

The conservative Campus Reform flagged the school's announcement.

In a speech in December, Ayers said the political left should utilize its "absolute access" to America's classrooms to effect change.

“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to -- the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” he said. “We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.”
