University of Chicago: Sorry Snowflakes, No Safe Spaces Here

The University of Chicago is playfully known as "where fun goes to die." Now, they're well on their way to becoming the place where "pc culture" goes to die as well.

In a letter sent to members of the class of 2020, Dean of Students Jay Ellison explained that the university is one where diversity of opinion is to be respected, and that "trigger warnings," "safe spaces," and speaker cancellations will not be happening under his watch.

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.

And the full text of the letter:

Bravo, and about time. The University of Chicago is known for being somewhat of a quirky institution (they host the largest scavenger hunt in the world each year, for instance), but it's far overdue for a major university to stand up to the bizarre mob of political correctness that has been endemic on campuses around the country.

Go Maroons. Let's hope more universities follow their lead.
