THE NEWS

  • The Yale School of Public Health is thinking twice about who should speak at this year’s commencement.

    Due to the recent controversy surrounding the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s announcement on Feb. 1 that they would no longer provide funding for Planned Parenthood — an announcement since rescinded — the School of Public Health is reconsidering its selection of Nancy Brinker, the Komen Foundation’s director and founder, as its commencement speaker this year.

  • Administrators say the variety of University resources designed to handle sexual assault is intended to expand available options for responding to incidents of sexual misconduct. But a majority of students interviewed said they find the current system complicated, and added that they did not know which programs to use if they wanted to file a complaint.
  • The Rhodes Trust released a statement Friday outlining for the first time its own account of how Patrick Witt’s ’12 Rhodes candidacy ended last November. According to the statement, which University Spokesman Tom Conroy said on Sunday is entirely accurate, American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust Elliot Gerson LAW ’79 learned Nov. 8 that Yale had told Witt his candidacy required re-endorsement — one week after the scholarship organization first learned of a complaint filed against the quarterback.
