Connie Cabello, Director of Intercultural Affairs, and Phyllis Thompson, Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, will present "The Freedom to Both Think and Feel: A Conversation about Triggers and Learning in Higher Education." Campuses nation-wide are discussing the furor stirred up by the University of Chicago's letter to incoming students announcing its commitment to "the freedom to espouse and explore a wide range of ideas," and its suspicion of "so-called 'trigger warnings.'" Does Stonehill need to "take a stand" on safe spaces and trigger warnings? What approaches best serve our students and our faculty? For background, you might take a look at this coverage in the Chronicle:
