Ahead of Wednesday night’s lecture by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, campus administrators at the University of Connecticut urged students whose feelings may have been hurt to take advantage of the university’s counseling services.

In an email addressed to the entire student body, Joelle Murchison, the Associate Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for UConn, warned students about the Shapiro lecture and expressed understanding for those students who may feel triggered by the event.


“We understand that even the thought of an individual coming to campus with the views that Mr. Shapiro expresses can be concerning and even hurtful,” wrote Murchison, “and that’s why we wanted to make you aware as soon as we were informed.”
