Quick Takes: Harvard Professors Again Challenge Summers, Tulane Earns A+ Bond Rating, Presidents Call for More Spending on Science
February 8, 2006
- About a dozen professors at Harvard University challenged President Lawrence H. Summers at a meeting Tuesday, with several suggesting that he step down, The Boston Globe reported. The faculty members criticized Summers over what they termed poor morale and the recent announcement that a key dean was leaving his position.
- Standard and Poor's on Tuesday assigned an A+ bond rating to a Louisiana bond issue on behalf of Tulane University and affirmed its A+ rating for the university's bonds generally. The debt rating agency cited the university's plan for recovering from Hurricane Katrina, the university's endowment, and Tulane's strong student body.
- Thirty-one university presidents and chancellors joined with business executives and other national leaders to sign an open letter -- printed in today's issues of The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post -- calling for increased federal spending on research and improvements in math and science education.
