America too Racist for Barack? Too Sexist for Hillary?
Fredrick Harris, professor of political science, says he sees a post-gender
future out there, and its name is Condoleezza Rice. The secretary of
state, he notes, "is unmarried, has no children, is completely
dedicated to her job, for pleasure she plays the piano and works, and
that's about it."

Students Benefit Most From 'Engagement'
"Students who participate in collaborative learning and educational
activities outside the classroom and who interact more with faculty
members get better grades, are more satisfied with their education,
and are more likely to remain in college. But the gains from those practices
are even greater for students from underrepresented racial and ethnic
backgrounds, or who come to college less prepared than their peers.
Those are among the major findings of the latest annual National Survey
of Student Engagement." (Access available through University network.)
