- The University will change some of its sexual misconduct policies following the Department of Education’s clarification of Title IX regulations, a member of the General Counsel’s office said Tuesday. The revised specifications, released April 4 in a “Dear Colleague” letter from the Office of Civil Rights to schools and universities receiving federal funding, outline procedures for handling sexual misconduct that are mandatory for compliance with Title IX. As administrators determine the details of the University-Wide Committee — a new board that will begin hearing sexual misconduct cases from across Yale on July 1 — they will take into account new policies required in the DOE advisory that are not currently in place at Yale.
- When Dan Meyer ’81 became the Chairman of the Yale College Council, he expected to attend law school and follow his father, current Connecticut State Senator Edward Meyer ’57 LAW ’61 , into politics. Instead, he played for a semi-professional basketball team in Northern Ireland after graduation, became a pastor and now hosts a three-time Emmy award-winning television show called “Life Focus” on PBS. Although Meyer did not pursue the political career he expected, he said his experience on the YCC influenced his choices by teaching him lessons about collective enterprise and achievement. Former leaders of the YCC have ended up all over the professional spectrum: six former presidents and chairmen interviewed now work in industries ranging from academia to environmental policy to the non-profit sector. All of them say their time at the head of Yale’s student government prepared them for work they would undertake in the future.
