Hughes’s bit part in uncovering these dramatic developments brings rare attention to the tedious work of academics, who often toil in obscurity and fixate on tiny details that few would bother to notice. Hughes spends countless hours combing through filings in the nation’s 94 federal judicial districts to track terrorism cases. In the past three years, he and his colleagues have pulled together some 15,000 pages of legal documents to give policy makers and the public a better picture of the nature of terrorism threats in the United States.

‘Common Sense’ or ‘Sexist Trash’?

‘Common Sense’ or ‘Sexist Trash’?

November 19, 2018

Long Island University has made deep cuts in recent years, reorganizing departments while pouring more resources into new disciplines that officials hope will bring in new students and revenue. The result is a kind of turmoil that has engendered an unusual, low-tech protest: an anonymous pamphleteer this fall is papering LIU’s Post campus in Brookville, N.Y., with homemade, hand-lettered screeds that skewer LIU’s administration. The broadsides borrow the title of revolutionary-era author Thomas Paine’s 1776 treatise: “Common Sense.”

November 16, 2018

A small, private liberal arts university in southeast Iowa will remain open after it received donations from alumni, community and others, officials announced Thursday.  Iowa Wesleyan University’s Board of Trustees met Thursday to discuss whether to close the institution, founded in 1842. The board on Nov. 1 postponed a decision on the university's future. The university needed $2.1 million to stay open for the spring 2019 semester. An Iowa Wesleyan professor and alumnus donated $500,000, and the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber of Alliance donated $120,000.  It's unclear how much was raised from other donations.

Dartmouth Professors Are Accused of Sexual Abuse by 7 Women in Lawsuit

November 15, 2018

Seven women are suing Dartmouth College for sexual assault, harassment and discrimination that they say they experienced from three prominent professors who, according to the suit, turned a human behavior research department “into a 21st-century Animal House.”  For over a decade, the professors — Todd Heatherton, William Kelley and Paul Whalen — “leered at, groped, sexted, intoxicated and even raped female students,” according to the court papers, which were filed Thursday in federal court in New Hampshire.
