This won’t be a rant from another suburban white kid railing against safe spaces, there’s already too much of that. My problem with this is that Northwestern’s President Morton Schapiro clearly said this to keep his job. In his article he even says that he’s not a sociologist, he’s an economist and as a fellow economist (econ major), this is obviously done for the money and power that comes with being a university president and he ain’t rocking the boat. I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed.
This is just another stark difference between NU and the University of Chicago. One was home to the Manhattan Project, the other lost to Illinois State*
