The Complications of Free Speech

The Complications of Free Speech

February 13, 2018

Controversial posters on immigration have rattled residents of one Stanford University (CA) dormitory. And university administrators, who have been zealous in their support of free speech rights, seem to have softened, removing one flier even while later admitting it should have remained hanging.

Universities Deny Graduate Students' Unionization Efforts

Universities Deny Graduate Students' Unionization Efforts

February 13, 2018

Private colleges and universities across the nation are beginning to push back in droves against graduate students’ hopes for collective bargaining.  Columbia University (NY) sent a letter last Tuesday saying it would appeal to a federal court rather than engage in bargaining, following the trend that Yale (CT), Boston College (MA), and others began. Georgetown University (DC) formally declined to even acknowledge the creation of a graduate student union in early December.

Harvard’s Next President: Another ‘White Male Economist Named Larry’

Harvard’s Next President: Another ‘White Male Economist Named Larry’

February 13, 2018

Harvard University’s announcement on Sunday that Lawrence S. Bacow would be its new president has triggered inevitable questions about the university's choice of a leader who in many ways represents the status quo at the Ivy League institution.  At a time when college campuses are a key part of the national conversation about gender, race, and the #MeToo movement, naming Bacow — a former leader of Tufts University — as Harvard’s next president plays into patterns of longstanding leadership inequities, both in American society as a whole and in higher education specifically.

Mishawaka Kindergartners at Home on Bethel College Campus

Mishawaka Kindergartners at Home on Bethel College Campus

February 13, 2018

The youngest students on the Bethel College (IN) campus seat themselves on a colorful rug that has the letters of the alphabet marking the border.  They readily follow teacher Ariana Grabill’s request for quiet as they prepare to compete in a mathematics game.  These aren’t college freshmen. They are squirmy, giggly, energetic kindergartners enrolled in Lab-K, the kindergarten classroom that is a partnership between the college and School City of Mishawaka.
