- The day after University President Richard Levin announced his intent to step down at the end of this academic year, Yale Corporation Senior Fellow Edward Bass ’67 rolled out the Yale Corporation’s plans for picking a successor.
In a campus-wide email on Friday, Bass appointed eight Corporation fellows to the presidential search committee and said he would select four faculty members to round out the 12-person committee. The search will be the second in Yale’s history to include faculty members — the 1992 search that appointed Levin was the first.
- The School of Engineering and Applied Science opened new facilities this fall to centralize its resources for students and expand research space for faculty. The Center for Engineering Innovation and Design (CEID) opened Aug. 26, taking over the space previously occupied by the Engineering and Applied Science Library in Becton Center. Administrators said they hope the new center will foster a more vibrant “culture of engineering” on campus.
- This fall semester, Josh Rubin ’14 will study political science at its finest. He will not, however, be enrolled in Approaches to International Security, a core class for all Global Affairs majors. In fact, he will not be enrolled at Yale at all. He will be an intern at the Chicago headquarters of Obama for America. Rubin is one of seven enrolled Yalies taking the semester off to work on Democratic campaigns. Mason Kroll reports in tomorrow’s News.
