Harvard Tries to Be Historic Again

+ More

In 1945, Harvard faculty issued a so-called Red Book plan to transform its curriculum and ended up transforming higher education. A new team of Harvard faculty wants to do the same thing, with a report they plan to release today that will call for mandatory study of religion and U.S. history, the Crimson reports. Their ambition might be warranted: After Harvard dropped early admissions last month, several other schools followed suit. But whether this move will incite the same reaction is far from clear--especially since this report still has yet to be approved.
