Political Correctness in Higher Education: Have we gone too far?

There has been a backlash against the perceived rise in political correctness in higher education institutions, with notable newspapers, such as the Telegraph and the Guardian, writing on the issue.

Hosted by Your Education Officer, Join us in exploring two questions related to this:

1) Snowflakes, safe spaces and the coddled youth: Are students today too sensitive?

2) Not all students are equal: Should institutions give the same priority to the needs of international students as they do home and EU students?

There will be guest speakers, with free food and drink (including alcohol!).
