About Fat Campus
Stewart, Terah J.
About Campus, v23 n4 p31-34 Sep-Oct 2018
Terah J. Stewart challenges us to think about our attitudes toward fatness and fat bodies and consider how our campuses marginalize people based on body size. He shares his students' stories of dreading to enter a classroom for fear of not finding a seat they can fit in or being publicly admonished for being unhealthy and lazy. Clearly, negative experiences such as these greatly affect students' ability to learn and feel connected to the education community. If we claim to care about our students' experiences, Stewart suggests we need to pay attention to this easily dismissed population.
