Former Cornell Student with Weapons Stockpile Will Be Evaluated

Former Cornell Student with Weapons Stockpile Will Be Evaluated

March 20, 2018

With images of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting still fresh, a federal judge ordered on Monday that a former Cornell University (NY) student undergo a psychiatric examination after authorities found a military-style rifle, a homemade bomb and other tactical equipment in his apartment, blocks away from the Ivy League campus. 
The F.B.I. and the local police are still investigating the former student, Maximilien R. Reynolds, 20, and what he planned to do with his weapons — if he planned to do anything with them at all.

Colorado College's board of trustees has agreed to strip a dormitory that opened in 1954 of its namesake, disgraced school president William F. Slocum, who more than a century ago was accused of perpetrating sexual improprieties on female students and staff as well as professors' wives. Slocum Hall, at Nevada Avenue and Cache la Poudre Street, is now known as South Hall, and its commons area is South Commons.

Antioch College Furloughs Faculty and Staff

Antioch College Furloughs Faculty and Staff

March 20, 2018

Another round of cost cutting is under way at Antioch College (OH), with faculty and staff members who earn more than $40,000 per year being required to take mandatory furloughs and a de facto hiring freeze being put in place.  Affected faculty and staff at the small college in Yellow Springs, Ohio, will need to take 10 days of unpaid leave before June 30, according to The Yellow Springs News. That’s the equivalent of an 11 percent pay cut over the next several months, or 3.8 percent of their annual salaries. No jobs are being eliminated.

Save Memphis College of Art? Group Trying to Keep Art School Open

Save Memphis College of Art? Group Trying to Keep Art School Open

March 20, 2018

A core group of artists and professionals has been organizing to keep open Memphis College of Art (TN) despite the school's October decision to close by May 2020.   Their "Save Memphis College of Art" online petition had drawn more than 3,000 signature clicks on change.org by Thursday. But the group has been meeting on Monday nights for months, planning a more substantial effort than the digital petitioning of the college board and other stakeholders.

March 20, 2018

Hard work and perseverance are defining a new presidency at a university that rose from an abandoned motel and gas station off U.S. 13 and now enrolls more than 20,000 students, the majority of whom are adult learners who work either full- or part-time.  Wilmington University (DE) President LaVerne Harmon, who became the first African-American woman to lead a Delaware college or university when she took the helm in July, has a lot in common with the students the institution has dedicated itself to, she said. She's not only a first-generation college student but worked fulltime while getting her bachelor's degree, master's degree and doctorate.
