College campuses across the country are the bastion of "political correctness." While supporters applaud the power of PC to heighten public awareness and combat intolerance, critics see political correctness as either silly, or more dangerously, as a means by which to limit intellectual inquiry. Campus Culture Wars examines controversial cases from five different college campuses. Topics of controversy range from gay rights at Harvard to sexual harassment at Penn State. This documentary addresses issues that relate not only to higher education, but also to more basic socio-political concerns.
