Harvard University addresses scandal

Michael D. Smith, Harvard
University's dean of faculty of
arts and sciences, sent out an
e-mail to the Harvard com-
munity on Friday to offer clo-
sure on the cheating scandal
that shocked the University last
spring, The Harvard Crimson
reported Tuesday.
Following an investigation of
the mass cheating, Smith said
about 70 undergraduates were
forced to disenroll. Of the other
students implicated, about half.
were put on probation.
Smith wrote that he hoped the
scandal would "shine a bright
light on the important issue of
academic integrity and what we
are doing on this issue.

Peace Corps volunteers have a
huge advantage."
The top schools in each cat-
egory - small, medium and large
colleges - came from the state
of Washington, a unique result
in the history of the rankings.
Schools with significant Peace
Corps involvement often have
similar programs or teaching phi-
losophies, Hessler-Radelet said.
Mackenzie Knowling, a Peace
Corps recruiter at the University,
manages the Peace Corps Office
in the International Center where
interested students can get infor-
and application procedures. The
University currently has volunteers
in 43 countries, Knowling said.
i"The Universityof Michigan has
alot of activist students,"Knowling
said. "People are looking to con-
tinue their work in social justice or

said those with the undocumented
status straddle the line "uncom-
fortably between experiences of
belonging and illegality." He said
the DREAM act, a legislative act
which allows youngundocumented
immigrants a stay of deportation,
creates a "second-class" citizenship.
OR ."The DREAM act was first
introduced in 2001 and many of
inline the first intended beneficiaries of
the act have aged out of eligibili-
ty," Gonzalez said. "Many of these
young people have been waiting
and waiting and waiting while
Congress debates their futures."
"Dreams deferred" was the
overarching theme of Gonzalez's
talk, part of the MLK symposium,
as he stressed that out of 11.1 mil-
lion undocumented immigrants,
2.1 million have been here since
childhood. Despite their Ameri-
canized upbringing, these students
lack access to the same opportuni-
ties as their American-born peers
by the time they finish high school.
"While our laws treat children
and adults differently, they don't
account for the continuity of chil-
by dren becoming adults," Gonzalez
said. "These young people are very

different from their parents who
are absorbed from day one into low
wage jobs and life in the shadows...
many of these young people by con-
trast growup in the sunshine."
Gonzalez discussed his exten-
sive multi-state research studying
undocumented children moving
from "spaces of belongingto rejec-
tion, from inclusion to exclusion."
Although these children grew up
pledging allegiance to the Ameri-
can flag and using American slang
during their K-12 education, they
eventually hit a wall when their
immigration status becomes the
most salient part of their identity.
Gonzalez quoted many of the
undocumented students he inter-
viewed throughout his presenta-
tion, including one young man,
Rudy, who started feeling out of
place when he graduated high
school and realized he didn't
have the social security number
required of many job applications.
Ultimately, Gonzalez wanted to
shed light on these undocument-
ed students who are somewhere
in-between, and point out the
deficiencies in the United State's
immigration policy, which is fail-
ing young people who feel like
American citizens but lack the
paperwork to back it up.
Gonzalez .also discussed the

agreatwayto (dothat)."
Knowling said she believes the
Peace Corps provides not only job
experience,but also ameans for stu-
dentsto explore new interests while
serving in avolunteer setting.
"I think a lot of people do seek
out the Peace Corps as a way .to
jumpstart their career, butI think
that some people see the Peace
Corps as something they are really
passionate about," Knowling said.
"It doesn't really pertain to their
career path in the future I think,
though, the skills that they learn
in the Peace Corps definitely help
them out in (any) career path."
Experiences in the Peace
Corps are often challenging for
students, providing them with a
variety of skills and experiences
to use after their involvement in
the organization, Knowling said.
"I think the experience and
learning how to work in difficult
situations with limited resources
- working with people who are
extremely different, who may not
speak the same language as you,

being resourceful, being proxi-
mal, being patient ... all serve you
really well in whatever career
path you choose to do after the
Peace Corps," Knowling said.
For students interested in
applying, Knowling recommend-
ed applying nine to 12 months in
advance. The University holds
monthly information sessions for
students to learn more about pos-
sible programs.
The University has a strong
historical connection to the Peace
Corps, originating with an address
by John F. Kennedy in 1960 at the
University, calling for the forma-
tionof such an organization.
"Alot of students feel aconnec-
tion to the Peace Corps because of
the history here at the University
of Michigan," Knowling said. "It
is a unique situation here with
JFK's history - standing on the
steps of the Union, proclaiming
the Peace Corps at 2 a.m. - so
I think, (for) a lot of students ...
it's one of the reasons they know
about the Peace Corps here."


pivotal role of the "underground
railroad" of teachers who shep-
herd undocumented students into
college by mentoring them and
assisting undocumented students
in finding ways to pay for college
without the help of federal aid.
Public Policy senior Kevin
Mersol-Barg, a Daily columnist
and the founder of the Coalition
for Tuition Equality, which had
a booth set up at the event, noted
that Gonzalez stressed that plac-
es of education should serve as
inclusive spaces and believes the
University is closing off the very
population that Gonzalez spoke
about since these instate students
cannot apply for federal finan-
cial aid or loans. CTE is a student
organization that is dedicated td
achieving in-state tuition rates
for undocumented students who
were raised in Michigan.
"Professor Gonzalez said that
institutions of higher education
like the University of Michigan
have a role to play to make society
more inclusive for undocument-
ed students," Mersol-Barg said.
"Unfortunately, the Coalition for
Tuition Equality believes that its
really not living up to the poten-
tial that it could in terms of really
providing more opportunities and
