Patten scrutinised for comment on quotas

first_imgLord Patten, Chancellor of Oxford University, has criticised the idea of imposing quotas on the admission of students, including BME students and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. He stated that any plan to introduce minimum numbers of students from diverse backgrounds would lower academic standards.Lord Patten made these comments following a Government proposal that would require all universities to publish data about the ethnicity, gender and socio-economic background of their students. This has been described by Jo Johnson, the minister for universities, as a “transparency revolution”.In response, members of Merton JCR, noting that only 13 per cent of students identify as BME, have proposed a motion to denounce the Chancellor’s comment and demand an apology.The motion called Patten’s comments “reprehensible insofar as they rely on the assumption that deliberately increasing the proportion of BME students at Oxford via quotas would entail a lowering standards, since it is clear that many highly capable students are turned away from Oxford every year, and that BME students are disproportionately rejected.”Ministers are also looking to improve transparency in other areas, including forcing universities to publish information about graduate employment and the number of contact hours for each of the courses they offer.In addition, the Queen’s speech to education given on Thursday, announced a bill making it easier for new universities to open. The bill also reforms funding to link it to the quality of teaching. Funding had previously been linked to the number of students.The increase in transparency has been cautiously welcomed by some students. Nermeen Hilton, a Balliol student, said, “I think that an increase in transparency in the higher education system would have a positive impact because it could discourage institutional prejudice. Having more information about the course and job prospects after graduation will definitely help people make better decisions about where they apply to.“However,” he continued, “the problem with universities publishing admissions data is it may lead to them trying to create the right statistics, rather than letting the best candidates in or actually addressing the underlying issues.”“Having more information about the course and job prospects will help people make better decisions”Nermeen HiltonDespite Lord Patten’s opposition to quotas, Oxford University has defended its own record on transparency. “Oxford has published detailed information on our access and admissions performance for two decades, and would welcome similar transparency across higher education,” a spokesperson told Cherwell.“We continue to make strong and sustained progress on access: For entry in 2016, the proportion of offers going to UK state school candidates rose to more than 59 per cent,” the University said. “The latest figures also show the University exceeding, meeting or making significant progress towards all four of its ambitious OFFA Access Agreement targets, including student numbers from schools with historically limited progression to Oxford, and students from neighbourhoods with low participation in higher education.”Lord Patten’s statement is the latest in a series of controversial statements made by the Chancellor, most recently in an article for Project Syndicate in which he claimed that universities in China and Hong Kong are facing threats from the government to free speech and their autonomy.last_img read more

CAT program expands its reach

first_imgKnown for connecting Saint Mary’s students and local Title I schools, the College Academy of Tutoring (CAT) program is changing lives and expanding locations this semester.“This semester, we are starting our tutoring program at a new school, Harrison Primary, for fourth graders,” CAT student director Christin Kloski said. “… We have tutoring programs at Harrison and Navarre and teacher’s assistants at Harrison, Coquillard and Edison.”She said the College will continue its pen pal program with Coquillard and added Harrison Primary students to the list of letter recipients.Cat was formed in 2006 to provide support for “students in under-resourced schools in the South Bend area,” Kloski said. The program provides academic support, including teacher’s assistants, pen pals and after-school resources.Kloski said she spearheaded the relationship between CAT and Harrison Primary this year by visiting the school.“My first experience with the school was their back-to-school carnival-themed night,” she said. “I volunteered at the school to experience the new school’s environment.”Kloski said her exploration yielded positive findings about the school’s environment.“As the students and parents poured into the cafeteria, I was pleased to see how well the students, parents, staff and teachers communicated with one another,” Kloski said. “There was such a great feeling of community at the school.”Kloski said student participants in CAT were able to experience that sense of inclusiveness first hand.“Later on in the semester, we ended our pen pal program with a literacy night at the school,” she said. “The pen pals from Saint Mary’s and Harrison met one another and were able to get to know one another during the event. The literacy night was a great way for Saint Mary’s students to experience a local community setting.“Harrison Primary was a place where Saint Mary’s students could see how well the South Bend community and the school community were able to work together.”Sophomore and CAT scholar Jade Johnson said meeting her pen pal for the first time at the end of the semester dinner was her favorite part of the program.“You get to know all about [your pen pal] throughout the semester,” Johnson said. “Without ever seeing their face, they become a part of your life. Putting a face to their name was an amazing experience I’ll never forget.”The pen pal program is important because it helps enhance the reading and writing skills of the third and fourth grade students while giving them a consistent and positive role model, Johnson said.“I encourage people to give it a try,” Johnson said. “Volunteering through the CAT program is a rewarding and exciting experience.”Kloski said all students are welcome to join the CAT program — regardless of major.Tags: CAT program, Coquillard, Harrison Primary, Pen Pal Programlast_img read more

Germany to move forward with 8GW of new wind, solar tenders

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:Germany’s governing coalition recently agreed to long-promised supplemental tenders that will add a total of 8 gigawatts of onshore wind and solar power to the grid over the next three years.In the coalition treaty agreed to by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Union alliance and the Social Democratic Party early in 2018, the governing partners pledged to add 4 gigawatts of onshore wind and 4 gigawatts of solar via “special auctions.” Generating capacity added under the auctions is on top of planned expansions under Germany’s amended Renewable Energy Act, which had capped annual onshore wind additions at 2.8 gigawatts in 2019 and 2.9 gigawatts in 2020.The German wind energy industry, among others, had pushed for the supplementary tenders out of concern that the country’s onshore wind sector faces a potential gigawatt-scale “decommissioning wave” as 20-year feed-in tariff contracts expire for existing wind projects beginning in 2020.The governing parties responded. Under an agreement reached by Germany’s Cabinet in early November, the federal government will hold auctions to procure 1 gigawatt each for onshore wind and solar in 2019, increasing to 1.4 gigawatt for each in 2020 and 1.6 gigawatt for each in 2021.Stakeholders have urged Germany’s governing coalition to ramp up renewables deployment in order to meet the country’s 2030 renewable electricity target. “We need more speed on the renewables expansion, otherwise we will not reach the target of 65 percent renewable energy by 2030,” German Association of Energy and Water Industries Chairman Stefan Kapferer said in a statement (translated from German).More: Germany greenlights 8GW of additional onshore wind and solar capacity Germany to move forward with 8GW of new wind, solar tenderslast_img read more

The cost of not …

first_img 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr No, the title doesn’t contain a typo. Or a missing word. But it is missing something: lost opportunity.When it comes to many strategic initiatives, financial institutions can have a case of the “nots.”“We’re not going to train our staff because it cost too much money.”“We’re not going to invest in branding because we don’t see the value.”“We’re not going to conduct a strategic planning session this year because it’s a waste of time.”Sometimes there are valid reasons for not doing a particular project. The investment might be too much, the timing might not be right or the project load may already be too high.However, in many cases let’s call the “not” disease what it really is: an excuse.When examining whether the cost is too high, the time involved is too much or some other reason credit unions and banks must also consider the cost of NOT doing a particular strategy or project. continue reading »last_img read more
