“In a unanimous vote”
They say the safe spaces are needed for people to talk. Why can’t people talk anywhere they want on campus without safe spaces?

Ohio State student leaders want ‘safe spaces’ campus-wide
Student government leaders at Ohio State University are calling for “safe spaces” spread throughout campus to host student conversations.
In a unanimous vote earlier this month, the Undergraduate Student Government approved a resolution requesting various “Dialogue Spaces … meant to accommodate diverse and positive discussion within a safe space,” the resolution states.
“[R]ecent issues in the past year have made students feel uncomfortable and raised concerns for a lack of dialogue, and … the most commonly used space for diverse dialogue resides in the Multicultural Center, which only provides one limited space,” the resolution states.
Student Anthony Buss, the student government’s director of diversity and inclusion, said in an email to The College Fix that the rooms’ official title is “Dialogue Spaces,” and they’re needed because “we wish to contribute in any way we can to the overall mental health and happiness of all students at Ohio State. As the Undergraduate Student Government, we are obligated to look into ways that our student constituents feel that can be done.”
To that end, student leaders will now work with administrators in an effort to identify and secure rooms throughout the 1,777-acre Columbus campus.
