Three Yale professors were arrested in D.C. on Wednesday while protesting for immigrant rights.

The Yale Daily News reports, “…over 10,000 people rallied at Upper Senate Park in Washington in support of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act. Three University professors — Alicia Camacho, Zareena Grewal and Daniel HoShang — were among more than 180 protesters who were arrested after the two-hour protest for ‘crowding, obstructing or incommoding’ by sitting on the steps leading to the U.S. Capitol.”

Those arrested will pay a $50 fee then be released.

Brown’s swimming and diving team prove hazing isn’t just a Greek org problem

Brown University launched an investigation into alleged hazing of new members on the men’s swimming and diving team on Nov. 29.

The Brown Daily Herald reports, “The University launched its investigation after The Herald requested comments regarding alleged events from Deputy Director of Athletics Colin Sullivan, Senior Associate Director of Athletics Carolan Norris and [Director of News and Editorial Development Brian] Clark. The Herald learned that, on the night of Oct. 7, new members vandalized University property, were instructed to perform a skit and vomited after excessive drinking, among other activities.”

The university is also looking into separate issues involving underage drinking on the women’s swimming and diving team.

 

Quote of the Week:

I have been teaching at universities both before and after the Trump election, and there are some things that have changed. But at the end of the day, I think a lot of the things that are going on with this administration are actually just bringing to light tensions that existed within university spaces in the first place.
