Black students feel less safe on college campuses, survey shows
Black students feel less safe on their campuses than other students, according to results from the National Survey of Student Engagement. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Black students feel less safe on college campuses than other students do, according to the National Survey of Student Engagement. About 13,000 freshmen and seniors at 34 institutions responded to questions about safety. While 5 percent of white students reported feeling unsafe, 14 percent of black students said they disagreed or strongly disagreed the statement that they felt physically safe on campus. Transgender students and students with a gender identity other than man or woman were twice as likely to disagree with positive statements about safety and belonging, the report said. Engagement Insights--Annual Results 2016 surveyed more than 300,000 first-year and senior students attending 512 four-year colleges in spring 2016. All received a core survey but smaller groups of students answered additional questions on specific topics. "The good news is that the vast majority of students do feel safe on campus," Alexander McCormick, director of the national survey, told Inside Higher Ed. "But there are still feelings of alienation and disconnectedness out there that we should be concerned about. There is an emotional cost and strain to not feeling safe or welcome that gets in the way of studying and engagement." The survey occurred before the election of Donald Trump as president, which has led to protests and racial incidents on campus. "Over these past few days, we have heard deeply disturbing reports of verbal assaults on students and others at a wide range of institutions, from middle schools to universities across the country, including our own campus," Ohio State University President Michael Drake and other administrators wrote in a message to the campus on Nov. 12. "We protect First Amendment rights actively, but we do not under any circumstances tolerate intimidation or threats to students, faculty, staff or visitors to our campus." U.S. Department of Education Secretary John King Jr. on Tuesday urged university leaders to be sure that students do not feel harassed or intimidated in the wake of a divisive election that has left "many of our students feeling vulnerable," Inside Higher Ed reported. King, who spoke at the annual meeting of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities,  said that all students -- regardless of race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation or gender identity -- deserve to be treated with respect. See the survey below or click here if on a mobile device. Following are some of the findings from the overall survey and questions answered by smaller groups of students: About 20 percent of first-year students had difficulty with both learning course material and getting help with coursework. These students studied fewer hours, were less likely to earn high grades, and were more likely to seriously consider leaving their institution. That question was asked of  25,000 at students at 140 schools. About 25 percent of beginning college students took college-level courses while in high school as part of a dual enrollment program.  While retention and graduation were positively related to student engagement, the strongest association for engagement was for the amount of time students spent preparing for class. While about 75 percent of student surveyed reported they felt "like part of the campus community," 31 percent of multiracial students disagreed with that statement. // DV.load("https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3221501-NSSE-2016-Annual-Results.js", { width: 600, height: 800, sidebar: false, container: "#DV-viewer-3221501-NSSE-2016-Annual-Results" }); // ]]>

Earth-Sign Grounding Influence by Holiday Mathis
Each lit window in each structure of the landscape represents an entire life of which you likely know nothing about. You've passed hundreds and thousands of such lives, and as mysterious as they may be, you may feel today that you can relate to any one of them as the earth-sign influences ground us in our shared earthly experience. ARIES (March 21-April 19). To invite your favorite people to events you think will be fun is a no-brainer. The super-brainy move is to invite them to events that have the potential to be boring. With good company, any situation can be a party.
