Hundreds of students in California's three public higher education systems walked out of classes Wednesday to call for the state to provide more money for their institutions, according to local press reports.
The University of Georgia's messy, on-again, off-again battle with its own foundation is on again. The Associated Press reports that the Board of Regents told the university to sever ties to the foundation. The two entities have been fighting over athletics programs, control of the university name and management issues.
Racist fliers posted at the University of Cincinnati set off multiple controversies this week -- over the fliers themselves (which said "Don't have sex with blacks -- avoid AIDS") and an article in the student newspaper that was illustrated by the fliers, according to an article in The Cincinnati Enquirer.
