Statement from President Eisgruber on the Killing of George Floyd and the Importance of Confronting Racism | Office of the President

As part of his remarks to the Class of 2020 on the occasion of #Princeton20 Commencement, President Eisgruber shares a statement on the killing of George Floyd and the importance of confronting racism.

In my Commencement address for today’s virtual ceremony, I say that members of the Class of 2020 graduate into hard times, and that the world needs not only their talent, but their insight, courage, and compassion. Though I recorded that speech less than two weeks ago, intervening events have remi...

Emory to hold online vigil June 5 to mourn victims of racist violence

Message from President Sterk: "These senseless acts strike at the heart of Emory’s commitment to upholding equity, diversity, and inclusion. Now, more than ever, we must stand together against intolerance and racism." Read the full message: links.emory.edu/1G

President Claire E. Sterk urges the Emory community to unite June 5 for an online solidarity vigil to mourn victims of racist violence and lift our hope for an anti-racist world.

How do I make sure I'm not raising the next Amy Cooper?

It's easy for white folks to recoil from Amy Cooper once we've had a front row seat to her rage-filled voice turning trembly and fragile when the 911 operator picks up.

When we don't break white silence with ongoing and explicit teaching about race and racism, and active and persistent modeling of antiracism, we end up raising the Amy Coopers of the next generation.

Opinion | If We Had a Real Leader

Politics aside this article by David Brooks really speaks to the value of education--" Think of all the young students, in schools everywhere, assigned Plutarch and Thucydides, Isaiah and Frederick Douglass — the great lessons from the past on how to lead, endure, triumph or fail. Only the great books stay in the mind for decades and serve as storehouses of wisdom when hard times come."

Service dog got his owner through grad school, so the university gave him his own degree

“The two have pursued 100% together a graduate degree in Occupational Therapy attending all the same classes, lectures, faculty appointments … fully making Griffin an equal member of the Clarkson Golden Knights family.”

A service dog named Griffin attended classes with his owner Brittany Hawley. When she graduated, the Clarkson University gave the dog an honorary degree.

President McRobbie announces IU's plans for 2020-21 academic year

Throughout this planning, the health and safety of our community have been and will continue to be our top priority as I noted, and that requires some important changes for the year ahead:

The university will utilize a combination of in-person and online instruction, and an adjusted calendar with no fall or spring breaks.

Survey Shows Big Remote Learning Gaps For Low-Income And Special Needs Children

Four out of 10 of the poorest U.S. students are accessing remote learning as little as once a week or less, according to a new survey from ParentsTogether, an advocacy group.

Parents from low-income homes are twice as likely to say remote learning is going poorly or very poorly, and 1 in 3 of all parents say they are "very concerned" about children falling behind.

Opinion | The Future of College Is Online, and It’s Cheaper

Up until now, online education has been relegated to the equivalent of a hobby at most universities. Is that all about to change?

The coronavirus forced a shift to virtual classes, but their continuation could be beneficial even after the pandemic ends.

Opinion | Why Science Alone Could Not Tell Us Whether to Reopen Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame recently announced plans to return students to campus for the fall semester. In order to reduce the chances that students from around the country and the world with multiple departures and returns will carry pathogens with them, we will bring students back two weeks early, forgo a fall break and finish the semester before Thanksgiving.

It is a moral question in which important principles are in tension.

Colleges expect few new international students will make it to their campuses this fall

As colleges try to plan their fall operations and shape their classes, they face a big question that will largely be answered by forces outside their control: If they do resume in-person classes, will international students be able to join them?

Colleges prepare for big declines in new international student enrollments due to the coronavirus pandemic. But survey data show that about 90 percent of current students remain in the U.S.

Taking an AP test outside McD’s: The low-income student’s predicament

We can’t stand by while so many students’ futures are derailed for lack of a reliable internet connection. Optimum and all other internet service providers should provide students with free access until schools reopen, regardless of their family’s ability to pay or any existing debts. They could do this tomorrow.

For In-Person College, Coronavirus Testing Will Be Key. But Is That Feasible?

The coronavirus test wasn't as bad as Celeste Torres imagined. Standing outside a dorm at the University of California, San Diego, Torres stuck a swab up a nostril, scanned a QR code, and went on with the day.

Colleges might be able to reopen their campuses if they're able to frequently test their students. But can they get tests --- and with budgets already squeezed, will they be able to afford it?

University of California Will End Use of SAT and ACT in Admissions

The University of California on Thursday voted to phase out the SAT and ACT as requirements to apply to its system of 10 schools, which include some of the nation’s most popular campuses, in a decision with major implications for the use of standardized tests in college admissions.

The change is expected to accelerate the momentum of American colleges away from the tests, amid concern that they are unfair to poor, black and Hispanic students.

Fever Checks and Quarantine Dorms: The Fall College Experience?

Fever checkpoints at the entrances to academic buildings. One-way paths across the grassy quad. Face masks required in classrooms and dining halls. And a dormitory turned quarantine facility for any students exposed to the coronavirus.

We listened as University of Kentucky administrators discussed bringing students back to campus, providing a glimpse into what other schools might do in the fall.
