THE NEWS

  • Over the summer, 125 Harvard students and recent alums received a notice that they had been accused of unauthorized collaboration on a final exam for an “Intro to Congress” class they took the previous Spring. They are scheduled to begin appearing individually before the Administrative Board, which determines disciplinary action, over the next few weeks. If convicted, those who are still undergraduates may be suspended for one year. Those who have graduated may lose their diplomas. Could the same happen at Yale? Sophie Gould reports.
  • The main Ivy League conference on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer issues will hit Yale’s campus for the first time this February. Roughly 500 students from across the Ivy League are expected to convene at Yale for the four-day event, which organizers say they hope will highlight prominent issues facing the LGBTQ community and encourage activism among participants. Hilary O’Connell ’14, president of the LGBTQ Co-op, said organizers are particularly energized as Yale lost a previous bid to host the conference, but beat out Cornell to coordinate IvyQ this academic year.
  • The final members of the presidential search committee were selected Friday, and newly appointed faculty representatives said they have not yet decided what to look for in a potential successor to University President Richard Levin. Professors Judith Chevalier ’89, Amy Hungerford, Richard Lifton and Anna Pyle joined eight Corporation fellows to serve on the committee. Bass also appointed professors Michael McBride and Ruth Yeazell GRD ’71 to act as faculty counselors to the search committee, responsible for gathering input from professors and forwarding it to the committee.
