When a College Employee Shoots a Student

When a College Employee Shoots a Student

April 10, 2018

Circumstances aside, the fact of a shooting by a campus police officer—believed to be the first at the university in more than 30 years—comes as national attention is trained on questions of school safety; one proposal that has dominated the conversation is to arm teachers and provide more resources for elementary- and secondary-school officers. College campuses faced a similar question in the 1960s and 1970s, amid widespread student unrest—in part the result of desegregation and the Vietnam War—and the police response to it. And college students today continue to protest the result: armed campus police forces.

No Deal on Business Major

No Deal on Business Major

April 10, 2018

Facing opposition from some students and fellow professors, architects of a proposed undergraduate business major at the University of Chicago have withdrawn their plan from consideration by faculty peers. Yet the idea lives on: instead of an entirely new major, the economics faculty has approved a business economics “track,” to begin in the fall, according to information from the department.

How Did These College Students Lower Their Debt? This School Gave Them a Financial Planner.

How Did These College Students Lower Their Debt? This School Gave T...

April 09, 2018

When Zachary Antle enrolled at Grand View University (IA) in 2012, his combination of academic and football scholarships covered much of his tuition, room and board. When Kendall Antle followed his brother to Grand View three years later, he had academic scholarships, but they covered less of his overall costs than his brother’s scholarships did.  Zachary graduated in 2015 debt-free. Kendall wanted to do the same, but he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to manage it. Kendall had access to a secret weapon his brother didn’t have, though — the equivalent of a financial planner provided to him by Grand View, known at the university as a GV Completion coach.

Trump Administration Seeks to Open Harvard Admissions Files

Trump Administration Seeks to Open Harvard Admissions Files

April 09, 2018

The Trump administration on April 7 urged a federal judge to allow for the public disclosure of records related to Harvard’s admissions practices, as part of a lawsuit accusing the elite school of bias against Asian-American applicants. The Justice Department sided with a group suing Harvard for allegedly discriminatory admissions practices. The DOJ told the judge to reject the university’s attempts to shield from public view many case documents that it claims are confidential.
