Thursday’s Buzz: 9.30.10

THE NEWS

  • The world did not end. One month into the pilot program, Yale’s experiment with mixed-gender housing seems to be as proponents predicted: not that big a deal.
  • Department budget cuts — a case study. Like all other Faculty of Arts and Sciences departments at Yale, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations has had to make serious choices about how to preserve its academic programs while also cutting its budget. And the choices it made provide a peek into what departments across the University have done since Yale’s endowment tumbled 24.6 percent in fall 2009.
  • Straight off a cliff. Yale scientists may soon find themselves short of funds and short-staffed as federal stimulus grants dry up in the coming year, eight researchers and University administrators said.
