This issue seeks to highlight great strides, but also persistent challenges, for women in our community. These struggles and achievements are topics that we will continue to dissect throughout the remainder of the 142nd Managing Board.
Journalists must approach everything with skepticism – that’s our job. In every story – including this one – we strive to fairly report the facts. Our reporter worked with integrity, and I stand by that reporting.
When we broke the story that night about the student’s reaction, we had to decide if we would print the word “n****r.” Because the story was explicitly about the word’s use, many expected that we would print it. In fact, some college newspapers have. We chose not to.

A third female graduate student was gone by the end of the year. They said the department’s treatment of women had affected their work and research and was a key factor in their departure. The University’s Title IX office opened an investigation into a German professor this summer.
