This study shares reflections and methods for creating 'safe' classrooms in universities to discuss gender, diversity, inclusion and sexism. In Korean society, in the process of the 2021 presidential election, gender conflict has spread to political conflict and intergenerational conflict. And at the center were college students in their early and mid-twenties. This study empirically explores how out-of-university gender conflicts infiltrated college classrooms. The main points of the study are, first, how students were able to learn how to deal with 'sensitive and political' subjects in a 'safe' space. Second, what online and offline devices should college professors implement to make the classroom feel like a 'safe' battlefield for students. To this end, the researcher used in-depth interviews, students' discussion assignments, and reflection papers with students' responses and instructors' experiments obtained through four liberal arts classes over two years as empirical data.
