THE NEWS

  • The estate of former pharmacology student Annie Le GRD ’13 student Annie Le GRD ’13 served the University with a wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday, alleging that pervasive sexual harrassment at Yale “emboldened” her killer, Raymond Clark III, and contributed to his crime.
  • After five years and $3.885 billion raised,, Yale’s top administrators and strongest financial supporters will gather Sept. 17 to celebrate the end of the Yale Tomorrow campaign. Yale Tomorrow, the University’s most recent fundraising drive, concluded this summer with the biggest year of donations in the University’s history: Yale brought in $862 million in new gifts and commitments for the fiscal year ending July 1, said Inge Reichenbach, vice president for development.
  • Young people and minorities— two groups that define New Haven — were hit hardest in the recent economic downturn, according to a report from an advocacy group published last week.
