However, we think that entirely divesting the endowment, most of which is invested indirectly through fund managers, from the 200 […]

October 29, 2014

“The play’s the thing / wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the King,” mutters Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, as he plots against his evil Uncle Claudius in the Shakespeare original. Perhaps the upcoming theater department production will also “catch the conscience” of the average College student? Hamlet, though a timeless piece of literature that speaks […]
