Thursday’s Buzz: 2.10.11

THE NEWS

  • About 250 graduate students congregated at Sterling Memorial Library Wednesday to release a report about what they described as Yale’s corporate character and failure to collaborate with faculty and graduate students in making policy decisions about their work. Leaders of the Graduate Employees and Students Organization argued this point both in the 15-page report, titled “Yale Inc.: The Corporate Model in Higher Education” and in prepared remarks at the rally.
  • Less than two months into his time as Ward 1 Alderman, Michael Jones ‘11 told the News last February he would need a “compelling reason” to seek a second term. While Jones said he would not be announcing his intentions until early April, it already seems as if on several of his top policy priorities could outlast his first term, which ends next January. Among these issues Jones hopes to advance in the coming year are an expansion of the city’s living wage law and an explicit protection in city ordinances against discrimination on the basis of gender identity.
  • The Elizabethan Club of Yale, is sponsoring three undergraduate productions of Renaissance dramas this semester in honor of its 100th anniversary. Productions of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and “Romeo and Juliet” are each receiving $1,300 from the Club while Christopher Marlow’s “Doctor Faustus” will go up this semester with a budget enhanced by an $1,800 award.
