Future scribes fight for their right to publish

BEHIND THE LABEL

A new procedure at the University
of Iowa would make graduate students'
dissertations and theses available over
the Internet, The Chronicle of Higher
Education reported.
The change allows the school to
require that theses and dissertations
willbecome "open-access documents."
Studentshave the option of postponing
Internet availability for two years.
Graduate students in Iowa's writ-
ing programs are up in arms over the
process, claiming it will inhibit any
attempts to publish their theses or
embarrass anyone who wrote about
personal experiences.
Professors claim they don't know
who inserted the clause, but they
believe it to be the result of a miscom-
munication.
INSURE YOURSELF OR ELSE
The University of Maryland's Uni-
versity Senate has proposed requiring
all undergraduate students to provide
proof of health insurance coverage or
purchase a University health insur-

If approved by Maryland President
Dan Mote, the requirement could be
implemented as early as fall 2009. It
is expected to drive down the cost
of Maryland's policy from $1,300 to
$800 because more students would
buy insurance in bulk.
ISLAM, WOMEN AND HARVARD
Harvard recently instated two
policies to accommodate Muslim
students - one designates certain
hours at the campus gym for women
only and the other allows for a call
to prayer to be given throughout the
Harvard Yard, The New York Times
reported.
Opinion articles in the Harvard
Crimson have condemned both
practices, and other students have
expressed concern about a possible
promotion of religion.
"Harvard changed its policies after
a small group of female Muslim stu-
dents complained thatthe wearing of

MOM SAYS I'M PERFECT FOR'U'
Some schools like Centre College
in Kentucky and Smith College in
Massachusetts are asking parents to
submit recommendation letters as a
part of their admissions process, the
Sun Journal reported.
Although a parent's opinion may
seem biased, administrators say
they often reveal insights into a pro-
spective student's personality.
J. Carey Thompson, Centre Col-
lege's vice president of enrollment,
said the testimony is often helpful
when choosing among applicants.
"We ask for the parent to assess
their child's strengths and weak-
nesses and often receive very
thoughtful reflections that give us a
bit of insight we would not have had
otherwise," he said.
