Arguments

  • Yes, universities and liberal universities are over-catering to protests. This may be promoting their liberal and democratic students. Universities should not allow protests on their property and discourage protests by their students and others.

    No, universities should promote peaceful protests on and off their campus.
    Nope
  • Yes, universities may be teaching their students liberal views and possibly encouraging them to protest.

  • It's a blend.  Some universities embrace it more than others.

    Personally, I think the whole thing can be addressed with simple criteria.  Make everything have student sponsorship, enforce pre-approval including a registration that addresses safety protocols, and then say not to anything surpassing the resources to handle the event.  Done.  Then you're neither endorsing nor denying based on the politics, you're simply administering a fair process for the students.

    Universities have historical been in a very deep relation with student activism. For example, it is not random that the democratic protests in China in 1989 were dominated by the university students. Universities offer hard programs challenging students and improving their cognitive abilities - and in addition, they only accept the applicants with far above average cognitive abilities. Smart people are naturally better at seeing the flaws of the system, and, as such, are more likely to rebel and protest against it.

    Public universities serve the people and must listen to them, and private universities serve their customers (which are students) and must listen to them. It is as impossible to over-cater to a student protest as it is to overcater to a consumer's protest: if you want to sell your goods to the consumers, you must adjust your goods to their needs, instead of trying to do the opposite and inevitably failing.

    I think students should be allowed to protest, as long as it fits accordingly with university guidelines. For example, a peaceful protest with no violence and not much disturbance is fine, while a protest where students stop other people from getting into the building is not.
