THE STUDENT BODY

Eye of the Beholder -- A new study in the journal College Teaching suggests that reasons some students perceive political bias may have to do more with their own identities than with anything taking place in the classroom, and suggests that there may be techniques that would lessen the perception of bias.

Wrong People on Trial? -- National television news shows featured college women who had accused other students of rape -- and whose cases, as the women described them, had been swept under the rug by their universities' judicial processes, which they say were biased against them. (see story)
