Harvard Official May Have Misallocated Dorm Funds

An investigation started by the House Committee at Harvard University's Currier House has unearthed evidence that a committee officer last year may have misappropriated $12,000 from the house's budget last year.

"The case has now gone to the district attorney's office," according to a letter sent to house residents. The main person responsible for the misappropriation in question has not yet been identified. The letter said that any possible financial difficulty as a result of this misappropriation was not expected. [The Harvard Crimson]

Yale Union on Strike

Clerical employees at Yale University went on strike to force concessions on benefits. Half of Local 34's 2,100 workers left their jobs, and productivity slowed as managers, professors, and administrators filed paperwork, worked on photocopies, and answered phones.

"I think [managers and administrators] are feeling it. We're being told we're being missed," said one striking worker. The 1,100-member Local 35 Union, made of maintainance and service workers, plans to go on strike on March 25 if concessions are not granted. [The Yale Daily News]
