STERN: A scholar’s kiss of death
Top-notch scholarship is imperative, but Yale is not designed just to churn out wonderful research. It is intended to enrich young minds.
STERN: Misdirected studies
We need to question why D.S., and D.S. only, exists as a yearlong humanities program in the first place.
STERN: Rethinking Johnson’s gift
The story I keep hearing seems too easy. I have always been taught — by some of the best professors in the world, no less — to challenge simple, one-sided narratives.
STERN: Fix the Corporation
We are a university governed by an unelected, unrepresentative, unconnected and unknown body, meeting in private. This has to change.
STERN: You only major once
No major can guarantee you a job, but no major defines your job either. What you want to learn and what you want to do are not inextricably linked. Go major in whatever excites you.
STERN: We are the 79 percent
We need to demand a greater voice in making decisions that will have a profound impact on our lives and the school we all love.
