About a decade ago, Massachusetts Institute of Technology history department chair Craig Steven Wilder, then a professor at Dartmouth, began to research how black abolitionists were excluded from colleges before the Civil War. After discovering that some of these abolitionists had attended the College, he turned to the archives of Rauner Special Collections Library, where his findings took him through college founder Eleazar Wheelock’s personal papers and Samson Occom’s diary to the intersection of American slavery and colonial colleges.

When activist Tanya Kappo first began using the hashtag #IdleNoMore on Twitter to promote social justice for the indigenous peoples of Canada, she had no idea that she was starting a nationwide movement.

A report released by consulting company Sightlines indicates that many college campuses are in need of massive repairs, but growing costs associated with outdated structures pose a serious financial problem, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. Administrators across the country must decide which buildings to rebuild, maintain or tear down. Since funds are not available to repair everything, some buildings will need to be eliminated, and many institutions plan to reduce their current campus size. Though building investments by private colleges have increased, public university spending is flatlining. Many public colleges, in particular, have reached their debt limits and can no longer borrow money for projects.

Dominant in their fall season swan song, the tennis teams sent a clear message to the Ivy League that it is ready for 2014, with the exciting prospect of success to replace the memory of a spring season that left the Big Green knowing it could do better. The men traveled to Minneapolis to compete in the Gopher Invitational, hosted by the University of Minnesota, and Cambridge, Mass., to compete in the Harvard Halloween Invitational, while the women enjoyed their first home action of the fall campaign in the Big Green Invitational, which included West Virginia University, the University of Massachusetts and Boston University.

Vox Clamantis: A Grossly Inaccurate Portrayal

(11/06/13 7:42pm)

Having studied on the China foreign study program, subsequently serving twice as director’s assistant and authoring the student handbook for the FSP and LSA+, I am disappointed by Jon Miller’s grossly inaccurate portrayals of the programs. First and foremost, academics are emphasized. Students frequently cite the heavy workload and ask for less; the requests are always declined because of the academic priority. It is impossible to place the students in classes with the Chinese as the latter’s proficiency is much higher.
