The United Nations Climate Change Conference 23rd Conference of the Parties was held from Nov. 6 to Nov. 12 and among the delegates, organizations and other attendees were members from the Climate and Development Lab at Brown.

The Brown Daily Herald reports, “Nations from across the world congregated in Bronn, Germany to discuss climate agreements and how they could battle climate change for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 23rd Conference of the Parties.”

Twelve undergraduate students attended the first week and six more went the second week. The students worked on “embedded” projects with organizations assigned to them before COP23 like Oxfam America, an organization that aims to reduce poverty.

Harvard, please report to the the Justice Department’s office 

Harvard is being actively investigated by the Justice Department over the university’s use of race in its admissions policies and declared the school is “out of compliance” with federal law.

CNN reports, “The Justice Department’s battle with Harvard potentially sets the stage for the first major legal test of affirmative action policies under the Trump administration. Last year, the US Supreme Court ruled that race can be one among many factors universities use in making admission decisions.”

Two letters from the Justice Department indicate that Harvard is challenging the investigation and states that if the school fails to provide certain documents, a lawsuit will be filed against them.

Quote of the Week

Your intrinsic worth is not measured by the amount of rejections you’ve had, but by how many successes you’ve achieved. Sure, it’s a cliche, but every relationship you value and find meaning in is a victory in and of itself. Just because there was no application for a meaningful role in life doesn’t mean you weren’t accepted for it.

– Leora Eisenberg, writing in the Daily Princetonian
