Why the University of Chicago Opposes ‘Trigger Warnings’

Why the University of Chicago Opposes ‘Trigger Warnings’

February 21, 2017

A growing number of colleges around the nation are taking steps to protect their students from ideas and words some find hurtful or upsetting. That protection includes a broad blanket of administrative support for things like safe harbors and bias response teams designed to investigate “micro aggressions” and “micro invalidations.”

February 21, 2017

One Catholic College Temporarily Closes, But Another Springs Up

One Catholic College Temporarily Closes, But Another Springs Up

February 17, 2017

According to news reports about the college’s needs, dwindling endowment and inability to turn assets into cash, it seems the college has a very steep climb to get back on its feet—and it’s already facing a possible loss of accreditation. Coincidentally or providentially, in the very same week, Thomas Aquinas College of Santa Paula, Calif., announced that it would be opening a new campus in Northfield, Mass., in the fall of 2018.
