Harvard received just under $800 million in outside research funding in fiscal year 2015, continuing a years-long decline, according to a recent University report.
As college students across the country stage protests in response to race-related incidents on their campuses, some cultural student groups at Harvard are planning to form a coalition “to present demands to the administration.”
Faculty members overwhelmingly praised a proposal for a renewed General Education program—a drastic overhaul of the program’s current structure—at the semester’s final meeting of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on Tuesday.
Harvard undergraduates would be required to fulfill distribution requirements, complete a quantitative-based course, and take fewer general education courses in new, consolidated categories as part of a drastically altered General Education program, should members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences vote to approve a new proposal in the coming months.
Dozens of students and Harvard affiliates gathered in the Science Center Plaza on Wednesday afternoon to rally in support of black student activists on other college campuses, where mass protests against racism have erupted in recent weeks.
