Yalies pride ourselves on our ability to juggle academic and extracurricular commitments of all sorts, but we habitually put them ahead of our personal well-being.
POSNER: A lesson already learned
At Yale we’re fortunate to be so frequently in the company of scholars and role models like Sotomayor and Davuluri. But we don’t need them the way so many students in this country do.
POSNER: I will not lean in

POSNER: Addressing mental illness
If we offered incoming students education on emotional issues half as comprehensive as our discussion of sexual health and consent, we’d be in a far better place.
