HPRgument: Safe Spaces

Introduction

On March 21, Judith Shulevitz published an op-ed in the New York Times criticizing the rise of “safe spaces” on college campuses across the United States. Shulevitz writes that the rise of safe spaces and other institutionalized support systems “may be exacerbating students’ ‘self-infantilization,’” causing students to become insular beings too fragile to handle the reality of the “real world.” HPR writers analyze Shulevitz's controversial claim.                                                                                                                      Image Credit: flickr, Nazareth College
