THE NEWS

  • At a panel discussion at the Whitney Humanities Center Wednesday, Mayor John DeStefano Jr. unveiled new initiatives that will expand the recently announced New Haven Promise program. The panel, moderated by Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Master of Timothy Dwight College Jeffrey Brenzel, included Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.5 million member American Federation of Teachers, and J.B. Schramm ’86, founder and CEO of College Summit, a non-profit that works with 25,000 under-resourced students nationwide on college readiness. DeStefano, who was invited to Yale as part of Timothy Dwight’s Chubb Fellowship, announced the New Haven Promise “Partnership,” a threefold set of initiatives designed to develop college aspirations and preparedness among public school students.
  • International students who cannot return home this Thanksgiving

    break have the option of spending the holiday with New Haven families. The Office of International Students and Scholars finds hosts for Yalies who are staying on campus for the week-long break that starts this Friday and want to share a meal with a local family on Thanksgiving Day, Program Coordinator Amanda Eckler said.

  • Historic Wooster Square is considered by most to be one of the New Haven’s safest neighborhoods, but amidst a recent spike in crime in the neighborhood, resident Emily Ferrigno said she is moving out. And she is not alone.

    Other Wooster residents have voiced concern in response to the crime spree: there have been 47 reported cases of car break-ins or car vandalism in the area in the past week alone, as of Monday evening.
