Campus Highlight: Harvard College Munch

By December 5, 2012

Follow me on:

(My apologies for the delayed Campus Highlight post this week!)

Harvard is getting quite a bit of press lately because of its recent decision to formally recognize Harvard College Munch, a student kink group.

As a member of the organization commented in the Harvard Crimson, the club was founded to "provide a more comfortable space for students to discuss their sexual desires." Instead of having to connect under the radar, students interested in talking about kink can now formally meet and, like other student groups, have access to campus resources.

To those not connected with the dynamics of a college campus, recognizing a student group that promotes what some consider nontraditional values or practices can seem inappropriate. But for those who understand how important it is to have a marketplace of ideas present at a college or university, clubs like Munch are an important and vital aspect to a healthy community. Way to go, Harvard ... and way to go Munch members!

(Each Monday during the academic year, I feature a "Campus Highlight": a unique, interesting, and noteworthy student organization, program, or initiative that demonstrates the amazing things college students do each and every day across the country.)
