The past year saw students protest on campuses across the U.S., asserting that universities have not done enough to respond to racial bias on campus and to create inclusive academic communities. Some critics dismiss their demands and point to the rise of “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” as political correctness run amok. What can and should universities do to address these complaints? And how might these issues affect or be affected by the Supreme Court’s consideration of affirmative action this Term in Fisher v. University of Texas?
