i don't think anyone who uses this site attends evergreen, i haven't particularly followed that story, i am highly suspicious of what the media says (especially about topics like this), and i don't know what you've already learned.
the media is full of stories that make college students seem like rabid reactionaries. when i have heard students speak for similar viewpoints (that is, jarring responses to racism in schools), the students seem like they have a valid concern, but are relying on bad solutions (ie, reform has to leave certain institutions and expectations intact, and that is where reform stops making sense. the changes they're asking for won't actually bring the goal they say they want, as far as i can tell). on the other hand, since it's unclear what makes significant change, and if significant change happens it almost surely will not be in some linear way, with cause and effect that we can chart, maybe their attempts will help something good happen.
on yet another hand, identity politics--like other politics--has always involved people throwing their weight around (ie attempting to have a big impact in a perhaps arbitrary way), which is also part of figuring out how much someone can get away with (i'm sorry there is so much colloquialism in this comment--it's a reflection of how layered the topic is).
ps: despite my general skepticism, these articles provided some interesting context, including weinstein's decision to go on fox news: https://crosscut.com/2018/07/after-year-turmoil-can-evergreen-reinvent-itself
