U of Chicago reminds new students that college is for grown-ups
Finally the grown-ups are retaking control of our college campuses. Or at least at the University of Chicago, the administration is speaking up and warning incoming students that the ridiculous, immature, hyper political correctness of SJWs (“social justice warriors”) disrupting other campuses in recent years will not be tolerated. There will be no “trigger warnings,” no “safe spaces,” and no banning of speakers with controversial points of view, says this week’s letter from University of Chicago Dean of Students John Ellison:
“Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called trigger warnings, we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own.”
It’s about damn time.
