Star Economist at Harvard Faces Sexual Harassment Complaints

Star Economist at Harvard Faces Sexual Harassment Complaints

December 17, 2018

Before he turned 40, Roland G. Fryer Jr. had earned tenure at Harvard, received a MacArthur “genius” grant and won the most prestigious award for young American economists. He stoked a national debate by concluding that police officers show no bias in the shootings of black men.  But his rapid ascent has taken a troubling turn as Harvard officials review a university investigator’s conclusion that Dr. Fryer fostered a work environment hostile to women, one filled with sexual talk and bullying. The findings, reviewed by The New York Times, found that Dr. Fryer had engaged in “unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature” toward four women who worked in the Harvard-affiliated research lab he created.

Advance Closing Notice

Advance Closing Notice

December 17, 2018

Newbury College (MA) had been through many changes and adaptations in its 56 years. The small private college was founded in 1962 in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston as the Newbury School of Business. It moved multiple times, settling in Brookline, outside the city, in 1982. It became Newbury Junior College in 1971, changed its name to Newbury College in 1985, and became a baccalaureate college in 1994.  These days, Newbury branded itself to try to appeal to current students -- as a “liberal arts college providing career-oriented experiential education.”  But on Friday Newbury joined a steady drip of small private liberal arts institutions succumbing to financial pressures and falling enrollment. It announced it will close at the end of the spring 2019 semester.

Dartmouth President Announces Latest Anti-Sexual Harassment Plan

December 14, 2018

Dartmouth College (NH) will unveil its latest plan next month to reduce sexual misconduct on campus, President Philip Hanlon announced.  The announcement comes a month after seven current and former students in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences filed a class-action lawsuit against the school seeking $70 million. They claim the college failed to protect them from three former professors — Todd Heatherton, William Kelley, and Paul Whalen — who allegedly harassed, groped and sexually assaulted students over a number of years.
