Point Taken: A Debate—Can Sex on College Campuses Be Managed by a Checklist?

Point Taken is the new late-night civil dialogue show from PBS. In this special Ideas Festival version of the program, host Carlos Watson asks whether campus sex can be managed by a checklist. On the YES side, California State Northridge President, Dianne Harrison and Kenyon President Sean Decatur suggest such a careful approach is the best way forward, while arguing NO, Harvard Law School’s Nancy Gertner and recent Middlebury alum and frequent writer on the topic, Leah Fessler, suggest a checklist is unworkable. What do you think? Audience participates through social media. #PointTakenPBS
