March 20, 2020

From the YaleNews site, “Students Call For Universal Pass.”

Citing concerns over equity as Yale moves to online classes for the rest of spring semester, a coalition of undergraduates has urged the University to give grades on a “universal pass” basis — without any possibility of failure for every course this semester.”

Political Science Chair Gregory Huber wrote in an email to the News that members of his department are concerned about “equity and hardship,” but also want to deliberate the issue fully before “an irreversible decision is made.””
