­Welcome to SA Weekly, your destination for higher ed news, NASPA research and policy, constituent blogs, and more.

Promise Ignored? “Yale has pledged millions for faculty diversity, but 13 professors who teach in its ethnicity, race and migration studies program say they'll walk if they don't get the resources and autonomy they've been promised.”

For USC, Salt in the Wounds “Students, alumni and faculty worry University of Southern California's attempts to move past scandals have been sidetracked by the recent admissions fraud and bribery case. Some wonder if the university's image will be permanently sullied.”

Obfuscating Net Price “Study finds four-year colleges fail to meet federal standards for disclosing costs on their websites.”

Another Speaker Shut Down “Beloit calls off talk by conservative speaker after students bang drums and pile chairs on stage to prevent him from starting.”

Conference Visa Woes… in Canada “Many had assumed that moving the event outside the United States would eliminate the issue.”

The Beginning of the End for the ‘Big Deal’? “Inspired by University of California’s decision to drop its ‘big deal’ with Elsevier, university librarians are laying the foundation to follow suit.”

Mixed Results on Florida Remedial Education Gamble “New research on Florida's remedial education law shows more students are taking and passing college-level courses. Despite the progress, researchers still see significant numbers of students failing and can't explain why.”
