From Campus Reform:

An anonymously written op-ed is raising the question of whether the current obsession with “safe spaces,” “microaggressions,” and “justice” has made classrooms an “unsafe space for faculty.”

In a column for Inside Higher Ed, a professor described only as “a tenured philosophy professor on the East Coast” explains that many faculty members today are “somewhat wary” of their own students, who have the “power to inflict serious damage—even sudden catastrophic injury—to [a professor’s] career.”
