Faculty members at Yale University have introduced a resolution expressing concern over the institution’s plan to work with the National University of Singapore to open that country’s first liberal-arts college. The measure calls on the partner institutions to protect civil liberties and uphold principles of nondiscrimination, the Yale Daily News reports. Yale and NUS leaders have pledged to do so, but some professors worry that academic and political freedoms could be compromised on the new campus. Faculty members overrode normal rules to introduce and debate the resolution but put off a vote on the measure until the next faculty meeting, in April.
