New space in Lerner will go to LGBTQ students, students of color – Columbia Daily Spectator

The space allocation follows recommendations made by the University Senate Student Affairs Committee, and was based in part on a proposal passed unanimously by Columbia College Student Council and Engineering Student Council calling for spaces in Lerner for LGBTQ students and students of color. Proposals in favor of the designated space cited the heightened risk of mental health crises faced by marginalized communities.

I didn’t have the grades to go to Columbia, but I have to defer to their wisdom. It is a mental health concern, and no one wants a mental health ‘crisis.’ 

Perhaps we should have whites only schools and restaurants and other facilities to avoid triggering any psychological damage. We must be good allies!
