Harvard Today: April 21, 2014

Happy Monday!Happy belated Easter to all those who celebrated. Hope you all had a chance to find some Pfister eggs! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready for the week ahead.

IN THE NEWS

1) Corporation Approves New Policy for Searches of Electronic Communications: Under the new policy, electronic searches must be authorized by the relevant dean or the dean’s designee. The policy also states that all searches must be recorded and that a committee chaired by Law School professor John C. P. Goldberg will conduct periodic reviews of recorded searches. While the University must notify the target of a search in most situations, it is not required to do so if notification might compromise the effectiveness of the search.

2) ‘Shark Tank’ Casting Team Searches for Harvard Entrepreneurs: “In search of budding entrepreneurs, the casting team for ABC’s Emmy-nominated reality television show “Shark Tank” visited Harvard’s Innovation Lab on Friday.” “Students from across the University came to the lab to pitch their products, which ranged from sanitizing products to cellphone apps.”
