Safe Spaces on Campus on Eastern Standard

Aug 15, 2016

John Hingsbergen, Dr. Matthew Winslow, Dr. Meta Mendel-Reyes

  With students returning to campuses across Kentucky, we’re hearing a new term, “Safe spaces.”  It’s something that began in the area of women’s rights and within the LGBT community and we’re wondering if it will tend to benefit or hinder the development of young people in college.

On this week's show: Matthew P. Winslow, PhD.: EKU Department of Psychology, Marieke Beck-Coon: Senior Program Officer of Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), and Dr. Meta Mendel-Reyes: Professor of Social Justice Studies at Berea College.
