SA Weekly: February 11

Civic Engagement Financial Wellness Policy and Advocacy Assessment, Evaluation, and Research Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement
February 11, 2019 Maya Ward-Fineman NASPA

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

The Virginia Scandals Spread “Hundreds of political scientists back colleague who accused lieutenant governor; Duke removes him from an advisory board; new accusation made about Duke failing to respond to rape report; racist yearbook photos found at more institutions.”

Trying Anew to Jump-Start Overhaul of Higher Ed Law “Senator Lamar Alexander, chairman of the Senate education committee, identifies familiar set of priorities in reiterating his desire to overhaul the Higher Education Act before he retires. But serious differences with Democratic lawmakers loom.”

See Hate Speech, Leave It Up “Resident assistants at University of Michigan are worried about not being able to remove racist or other offensive language from dormitory doors. Officials say they can't suppress free expression.”

Application Growth Finally Slows at U of California “Even as selective colleges in many parts of the country report increases, system sees application decline -- after years of increases. Some of the private colleges in the state with large in-state student populations (and ability to focus on minority students) see growth.”

More Anger Over Blackface Yearbook Photos “As images continue to be uncovered, colleges are forced to confront reality that institutions were hostile to black people and others -- well after they desegregated.”

The True Cost of Inclusive Access “A college is accused of making it nearly impossible for students to opt out of a program that automatically bills them for textbooks -- a potential breach of government regulations.”
