    After an alleged assault on a visiting Latino student, the last thing Brown students wanted to do was listen to President Christina Paxson’s words—instead they shouted her down and menaced her



    ... He then threatened Paxson and her administrators, saying, “I didn’t think what happened at Mizzou could happen somewhere else, but with the way things are going, you, too, are liable to be in a position that is precarious.” The audience broke into thunderous cheers ...

    Student protests continue almost two weeks after U. of Missouri resignations


    Almost two weeks after protests resulted in the resignation of University of Missouri System President Tim Wolfe, increasing numbers of students nationwide are rallying in support of the students there and for radical changes within higher education.

    From the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to the University of Kansas to Lewis & Clark, students are demanding that schools, and some state governments, address what they say is the systematic racism found both in their schools and off.

    Here’s a round up of some of the latest rallies that took place this week:

    Why college protestors are telling the media to stay away


    At Smith College, like at dozens of colleges around the country, students had a sit-in this week to show solidarity with protestors at the University of Missouri. But Smith's protest made news for another reason: what Smith told the media.

    The students who organized the event said that only media friendly to their cause could participate, according to MassLive:
