Freelance writer and author Daniel Grant writes: Perhaps the unfortunate story of the Memphis College of Art, which announced last month that it will close for good in 2020 and stopped accepting new admissions, is just an isolated case of bad luck. On the other hand, the Memphis College of Art’s announcement may be a harbinger of other college closings. Ron Jones, former president of the art school thinks so.

Notre Dame’s Stance on Birth Control Highlights Divide

Notre Dame’s Stance on Birth Control Highlights Divide

November 23, 2017

The University of Notre Dame fought in court for five years to limit the government’s ability to push religiously affiliated employers to offer contraception benefits. Now, the university is voluntarily allowing birth-control benefits, exposing a divide among Catholic institutions.  The university’s shift comes as the litigation enters a fresh phase after two U.S. Supreme Court cases and new rules championed by President Donald Trump’s administration. These rules, if implemented, would reverse a requirement set by Mr. Trump’s Democratic predecessor that most employers include birth-control benefits in workers’ health plans.
