Ohio University leaders are reportedly considering the creation of a workout room that would be designated for minority students.

Its one of at least three ideas proposed by a campus diversity leader as she and student leaders brainstorm plans to redevelop a portion of largely unused racquetball courts at the private institution.

Gigi Secuban, who took the helm over the summer as the universitys first-ever vice president of diversity and inclusion, reportedly made the suggestion at a recent student senate meeting.

Secuban mentioned a plan to turn one of the racquetball courts at Ping Recreation Center into a private workout room for minorities, sexual assault survivors, or people with special religious accommodations, The New Political student news outlet reported.

Not a lot of people play racquetball, so theres tons of racquetball space, so its one of those places were going to recondition, Secuban said.

The Ping Recreation Center currently has seven racquetball courts, according to its website.

Asked specifically by The College Fix about whether or not the university is considering creating a private workout room for minorities, sexual assault survivors, or people with special religious accommodations, a campus spokesperson would not confirm or deny any plans or proposals.

University administration has partnered with Graduate Student Senate to develop a plan that will maximize use of under-utilized space while creating opportunity to better serve all populations of students, Carly Leatherwood, senior director of communications services at OU, told The Fix in an email.

We anticipate a short-term solution will be implemented by Spring semester 2019 in response to students request.

The Office for Diversity and Inclusion did not respond to an email inquiry asking about the proposed workout room and whether or not students not included in the specified identity groups would be allowed to use the room.

Earlier this year, Stanford University began offering a womens only training to try to make its fitness center more inclusive. Administrators cited female students who didnt feel comfortable in large gym spaces, The Fix reported at the time.

However, economist Mark Perry and a male student filed a civil rights complaint, asking how excluding half of the campus from a university facility for four hours per week is celebrated as advancing inclusivity?

A Stanford spokesman told The Fix at the time that after Stanford received a complaint from one male student the recreation department decided to open up the same space for an equal number of hours focusing on weight lifting for men.

They ought to consider segregated bathrooms, water fountains, and bus seating as well.

I want to go to the special place for rape survivors alone. That would be great. Just stand outside the door and leer at them.

I mean, you know they put out.

"special religious accommodations," ??

 

What do they need, special exercise machines that allow a person to kneel throughout their workouts? A holy water drinking fountain?

 

This is perfect, then they can start funding white only areas. Al Sharpton would love that. Great solutions by these people.

Just judging from college basketball and I thought they already were.  :dunno:


It's been a bad year. My old favorite restaurant closed down, and my new favorite restaurant sucks.

Fascinating.   Civil Rights have really come full circle.

Many of those minority types fit into the "hourglass" shaped body description. . Get them in the gym any way you can.

Raquetball courts are pretty small. Stinky.

Sexual assault survivors is a stupid term. It implies lots of people die of sexual assault.

They tried involuntary sex providers.



But the wives had already copyrighted it.

Seems like racquetball players are already in the minority, so just leave it as is

How about shut down the enormous gym entirely and slash tuition. Then those who want to use a gym have money to do so, those who dont can use their money for what they wish.

College used to be for expanding your understanding.  To get a more global perspective, something beyond the limited exposure you might have just from reading books, or newspaper, or hear from those around you....that limited set of perspectives you might find in close friends or groups of similar interest.  And also to challenge your own views, as well as those of others, so as to arrive at critical thinking skills....

 

If these people think that carving people up, sectioning them off, to allow them to hide from all this so they can feel "safe" is going to help them, that is a sad state of affairs.  Those kids who do face challenges are going to surpass them later in the competitive world.
