Feature stories:

States of a Union

For the past ten years, a group of graduate students has led a determined movement to create a union. This effort has been strongly opposed by an administration that sees graduate student unionization as anathema. The result is a struggle over values as labor issues and higher education policies collide.



America the Beautiful

The renovation of the American wing of the Yale University Art Gallery has uncovered a historic building’s architectural past. In addition to offering students and scholars alike an updated way to examine paintings, sculpture, and the decorative arts, the project provides a glimpse of the venerable institution’s future.



Freshman Address

The lengthy correspondence between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams reveals qualities in the writers that serve as models for the experience the Class of 2005 will find at Yale.
