More safe spaces for college students:

The University of Wisconsin is working on building a new “safe space” for black students this semester, The Badger Herald reports.

This safe space, a Black Cultural Center, is part of an 18-point plan to help foster diversity on the campus that also includes a weekly email to freshmen about inclusion and diversity, increases the capacity of ethnic studies programs, and hires three new staffers for “under-served student groups” and one who “specializes in the needs of students of color.”

Their plan also encourages raising awareness of the university’s bias incident resources, which allow students to report bias incidents.
