As we start this election year, I think our collective resolution should be to adopt the same attitude as Northwestern did in regards to their Feedback column. Let's stop pretending that destructive nonsense deserves airtime.
Edward Jenner Elementary Academy of the Arts, colloquially called Jenner, is a pre-kindergarten through 8th-grade public school, with a population that is 99 percent low income, 99 percent African-American, and 20 percent diverse learners.
Dr. Soulakis is a public health scientist whose research focus lies at the intersection of epidemiology and informatics; he is particularly interested in understanding the expanding, data-rich environment created by health information technology, and leveraging computationally techniques to monitor and improve healthcare quality.
Why me? I had spent countless summers wearing high socks and soaked in tick repellent. I underestimated your tenacity.
There's a baby grand in the living room, but when Phyllis Chen sits down to play, it's at the child-size cherry-red toy piano.
Recently, I asked the Founding Faculty member of Design for America (DFA) Dr. Elizabeth Gerber - a professor in the Segal Design Institute at Northwe...
Some folks might glorify a guy with a "dad bod" as a stud, but medical, fitness and nutrition experts put that dude in the dud category. With a 500...
Most professors in this situation would have patted themselves on the back for having managed to get the article back online and then turned their attention back to their usual work of teaching and scholarship. But Dreger has made a career out of defending academic freedom.
The Labor Board appears to be concerned that most big-time, football-playing schools are public entities not covered by the Labor Act. Why should that fact mean that employees of a private university cannot unionize?
The Northwestern unionization effort has played a major role in moving college athletics in the right direction. That being said, I am sorry that the NLRB has decided against college athletes seeking a seat at the table.
Something seemed wrong about this situation. The officer said, "Give me your keys!" I said, "Why" but she ignored me. I still wasn't sure what was going on, I said, No. "Wrong answer" she replied. She snatched open my car door yelling, "Get the f**k out of the car" as she yanked me from my seat.
Perhaps the greatest threat to academic freedom may be the Department of Education, which has promoted a definition of harassment so broad that cases like Laura Kipnis's are all but inevitable.
Our voice will always be our greatest weapon. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. I choose to speak life for those whose voices have been eternally silenced.
Six weeks ago, Northwestern University President Morton Schapiro wrote a fine op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in which he offered a ringing endorsement of academic freedom.

I came to Northwestern University excited to become that cliché "global citizen"; to learn about the world, to meet people from places I had never been to, and to find new passions.
Without governance reforms that will put the players' education and safety ahead of the coaches' and schools' money-making priorities, the academically elite Division I colleges' claim to a higher ground is pure hypocrisy.
