Universities are making students undergo "consent courses" before enrolling for degrees, a report representing Britain's vice-chancellors has found. Universities UK (UUK), the representative organisation for educational institutions, on Wednesday published a report on harassment and hate crime on campuses. The report, entitled Changing the Culture, assesses the progress that universities have made since a taskforce was set up in 2016 to look at the scale of harassment and hate crime across higher education. After surveying almost 100 universities, researchers found that 81% have updated their discipline procedures, with 53% introducing or making additions to the student code of conduct. A further 81% improved support for reporting students and 67% improved support for responding students and 78% provided students with clear information on how to report an incident. … [Read more...] about Students told to take ‘consent courses’ before enrolling for degree
In the digital age, what happened to newspapers will happen to universities. This was the startling proposition put to an audience of academics a few weeks ago within the 900-year-old walls of Durham Castle, by Peter Horrocks, vice-chancellor of the Open University.

The age of “the fortress university”, in which “the academic was the custodian of knowledge” sheltering behind “high barriers to entry”, was nearing its end, Horrocks said. “I remember UK newsrooms scoffing at the idea that news consumption would move away from then … [Read more...] about A visionary to save the Open University – or the man who will run it into the ground?
They're both named Purdue, but that's where the similarities end. Purdue Pharma is the multi-billion-dollar drug company alleged to have hooked millions of Americans on opioids. Purdue University is the Big Ten university in Indiana known for its engineering school and basketball chops. Not everyone can distinguish between the two Purdues, however. University spokesman Tim Doty tells CBS MoneyWatch that uninformed parties have contacted the university president's office and its board of trustees in hopes of reaching Purdue Pharma execs. And so the publicly funded school based in West Lafayette finds it must distance itself from the privately owned company based in Hartford, Connecticut, that's offering to settle thousands of lawsuits alleging it fueled the nation's opioid crisis. "There are occasional emails and phone calls from people who might think the two are one in the same but to those people we politely reply that we are not," Doty said. "If … [Read more...] about Purdue University must remind people it has no ties to Purdue Pharma
