Law profs condemn excesses of 'safe space' proponents

Two law professors are raising questions about the perceptions of “safe spaces” on college campuses nationwide, suggesting that both supporters and detractors should moderate their approaches.

After conceding that safe space supporters often make themselves into “easy caricatures,” the professors condemn “right-leaning critics” for “overreacting with bluster or ridicule.”

While they reject the idea of using safe spaces to shield students from conflicting viewpoints, they also argue that universities should provide access to campus facilities as safe spaces for private groups based on freedom of association.
