Civility at Berkeley “More than a year after Milo Yiannopoulos's talk at the university attracted violent protest, the university sees a different style of political engagements on campus -- actual discussions across ideological divides.”

New Campus Home for Silent Sam “UNC Chapel Hill plans to create a new building to house Confederate statue. Controversy appears unlikely to end.”

To Pursue Federal Aid or Not “The Trump administration wants to spur more innovation in higher education. But some question whether pursuing federal student aid is worth it for alternative providers.”

The Growing Loan Burden for Parents of College Students “Parents are taking out bigger loans to pay for their children's college education, a new report finds, and having worse outcomes repaying that debt.”

Canada Blazes the Trail for (Authorized) Pot on Campus “After recreational marijuana was legalized in Canada, three universities are amending their policies to allow its use on campus. Universities in the U.S. remain committed to federally imposed ban of the drug.”
