A Needed Change

It is commendable that Harvard will catch up to its peer institutions, though unfortunate that it took a major cheating scandal to catalyze that needed transformation.

Editorials

Permissible, but Not Welcomed

We acknowledge that a student group can and should have the right to operate as it desires within the confines of the law and University rules. At the same time, a demonstration that deeply disrespects the core beliefs of other students is antithetical to any sense of community.

A Troubling Lack of Transparency

The right to freedom of the press was established to keep the people informed; and while the government reserves the ability to keep certain classified material from the public for our own safety, it is harmful to our very democracy when taken too far.

Ukraine for Ukraine

The recent efforts to improve Ukraine's government reflect an important step toward normalization in the country.

Credit Where Credit is Due

Harvard’s credit system is confusing and restricts innovative course structures. It is time for a change.

Resegregation, Ignored

Although segregation is no longer the law of the land, the United States is once again plunged into the midst of a civil rights issue thought to be solved just a generation ago.

Remembrance and Resilience

The commitment of both runners and spectators to participate in the race, despite the dangers last year presented, is a testament to their characters; it also represents an act of defiance, a symbol that the people of Massachusetts and elsewhere will not be cowed by brazen acts of terrorism.
