College presidents urge Education Department to stop Princeton ‘anti-discrimination’ investigation

The letter is part of an intense national debate over the nation’s racial history and how that has shaped the present, with protests over racial injustices flaring up across the country in recent months and dueling efforts to reemphasize the contributions of the Founding Fathers or to more directly confront the impact of slavery.

This month, Princeton’s president wrote about efforts to combat systemic racism on campus and beyond, such as diversifying the school’s faculty and making Princeton a more welcoming place. Even though the university had committed itself for at least the past 50 years to become more inclusive, “racism and the damage it does to people of color nevertheless persist at Princeton as in our society,” Christopher L. Eisgruber wrote.

Two weeks later, the Education Department sent the university a letter disclosing its investigation. “On September 2, 2020, you admitted Princeton’s educational program is and for decades has

The Baddour Leadership Academy teaches UNC athletes skills for college and beyond

Johnson said the program strives to prepare athletes for lives outside of sports and give them the best chance to find success in the professional world. 

“These are fully transferable life skills that we’ve seen anecdotally that they’ve been able to use beyond Carolina,” she said.

Chase Jones, a former member of the UNC baseball team, said the program taught him leadership skills he hadn’t fully honed coming into college. 

He eventually grew into a pivotal voice on and off the field after fighting off a stage 4 brain cancer diagnosis during his first-year season at North Carolina. After graduating in 2011, he applied the tools given to him from the Leadership Academy to become an outspoken supporter of the fight against childhood cancer, starting the Vs. Cancer Foundation.

“I found that even after graduation, some of these lessons that I have been instilled with really took me a leg

Many IT pros were hailed as the heroes of the enterprise’s new normal, as they facilitated the pandemic transition between in office to working from home, taking on the responsibilities for staff’s business and even personal devices. They had to make sure employees had access to the software and hardware they needed to do their jobs well; they ensured staff had access to reliable Wi-Fi, while installing security software to prevent breaches. 

Today’s IT professionals are the definition of trouble-shooters; they must be dependable, responsible, patient, skilled, and knowledgeable. 

But there’s one thing they just might not need—a college degree. 

We’re only a short generation away from the deep belief that attending college is tantamount—for the first foray toward true success. And many of

New Trump rule ties college funding to speech, faith rights

The Trump administration is moving forward with a policy that expands protections for religious groups on college campuses and threatens to cut federal education funding to colleges that violate free speech rules.

The rule was issued by the Education Department Wednesday, less than two months before the election, and cements much of what President Donald Trump outlined in a March 2019 executive order demanding wider speech protections at U.S. colleges. In taking up the issue, Trump highlighted concerns from conservatives who complained that their voices had been suppressed on university campuses.

As part of the policy, the Education Department can suspend or terminate grants to public universities found in court to have violated the First Amendment. In extreme cases, schools could become ineligible for any further grants. The same actions could be taken against private universities found in court to have violated their own speech codes.

Public universities could also

New Delhi: In a major development, the Supreme Court on Wednesday stayed the implementation of 2018 Maharashtra law granting reservation to Marathas in education and jobs and said the Martha quota for jobs or college admissions can’t be granted at this moment. While hearing the matter, the three-judge bench of the top court referred the Maratha quota matter to larger bench which will be set up by Chief Justice of India. The three-judge bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and S Ravindra Bhat said that the total quota now exceeds the 50 per cent cap set by the top court. Earlier, Maharashtra had passed a law which allowed 16 per cent quota in educational institutions and government jobs. Soon after the law was challenged, the Bombay High Court had upheld the constitutional validity of the law of the state. However,
