Carleton students Brit Fryer '15 (Chicago) and Rebecca Spiro '15 (Bethesda, Md.), who serve as student assistants in Carleton's gender and sexuality center, spoke with KTTC-TV from Rochester, Minn., regarding affirmative consent policies related to sexual activities among students. The University of Minnesota student body is considering adopting affirmative consent, a policy that already exists at Carleton and two other Minnesota colleges and universities. "It's not enough for someone to say 'no'. They also have to say 'yes' to some kind of sexual act, or it's not OK," Spiro said. Fryer noted why he thinks this type of policy is gaining support at more schools across the country. "We're in an age when people are more comfortable speaking out on their experiences. I think it's something we've always dealt with, I think that the culture is shifting and that people are more open to talking about it. I think that's why colleges are having to respond," he said.
Thiboutot Tells Wall Street Journal Personality, Test Scores Both Important in College Admissions ProcessJanuary 9, 2015 at 11:22 am
Paul Thiboutot, vice president and dean of admissions and financial aid, is quoted in a Jan. 9 Wall Street Journal story on how colleges and universities are using personality assessments to fins students who will succeed on their campuses. While some schools are looking past standardized test scores, or not even requiring them for admission, Thiboutot feels they still play a role in the process. “It levels the playing field,” he said. “It helps us gauge the ability of students across the country when there is no uniformity in the strength of the curriculum.”
