University of Kansas maintains women's-only lunchroom for Muslims
by Justin Caruso
The University of Kansas maintains a women's-only lunchroom that's largely utilized by Muslim students, a venue billed as a "safe place" for them.
"It is mainly used by Muslim women because it allows them a space to remove [their] hijabs and eat," said Abdoulie Njai, KU Student Senate director of diversity and inclusion, in an email last week to The College Fix.
The room, open on weekdays from noon to 1 p.m. in the public university's Office of Multicultural Affairs, is open to all female students — but in particular it allows female Muslim students to eat in a segregated, private area.
