Daily Debriefing

(10/17/07 4:22am)

The Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics hosted over 130 representatives from colleges all over the country to discuss the balance between intercollegiate sports and academics, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported Tuesday. Participants in the national forum, allegedly the first dedicated to the topic, addressed the relationship between professors and coaches, whether professors should be involved with sports programs and ways in which campuses with prestigious athletics could maintain high academic standards. While some faculty members argued that professors should deem athletics a complement to education in the classroom, a Knight Commission survey of over 2,000 faculty members at Divison I-A schools found that professors ranked athletics 12th out of 13th in terms of overall priority. "The faculty is not going to be allowed to do anything that interferes with the success of these big-time programs," Gary R. Roberts, dean of the Indiana University School of Law at Indianapolis, told the Chronicle.

Two Dartmouth students, along with three University of California-Irvine students, won first place in IBM's Cell Broadband Engine Professor University Challenge for using three Playstation 3 video-game systems to replicate human brain functions, according to a university press release. The students used algorithms to reproduce brain functions, which previously had been an inefficient and slow process. Connecting three PS3s through a network and linking them to a computer, however, managed to speed up the results; the students reported a delay of only one second. The team beat out 80,000 other competitors and earned a $10,000 grand prize for their innovative work.

In the name of synergy, women's groups join forces

(10/16/07 7:07am)

On a campus with over two dozen women-related organizations, gathering the members of these groups in one location is no easy task. The Center for Women and Gender is hoping to change this problem through the Council on Women's Organizations, an umbrella group for the leaders of women's organizations on campus to share what each of their organizations is doing and to work on ways that they can collaborate.
