THE NEWS

  • Administrators reversed their decision to cancel next week’s Yale College faculty meeting — which will include a discussion of Yale-NUS — after faculty protests this weekend. Professors say they were surprised by the initial cancellation of the meeting after a Feb. 2 faculty meeting proved especially contentious. At that meeting, faculty spoke out against the centralization of administrative services, and they said they intend to voice strong concerns about Yale-NUS in March.
  • Over 700 African-American students from across the country gathered on campus this weekend to discuss sexual issues in the black community during the 17th annual Black Solidarity Conference. The three-day conference, titled “Stigmas and Stereotypes: An Exploration of Black Sexuality,” included speeches by prominent civil rights advocates, small group discussions and film screenings.
  • Organizers of the second annual Yale Engineering and Science Weekend (YES-W) solicited alumni of the program and slightly modified the schedule of events to help showcase the University’s resources to over 100 prospective students this weekend.
