Really? Really? Another reason why these institutions drive people crazy. Can’t they see how others will see this?
To quote from the Bloomberg story:
“At Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, undergraduates are relieved that they no longer have to fight the temptation of high-paying Wall Street jobs, President Drew Faust said, in an interview in New York.
“This year, many undergraduates told me that they were looking more broadly at career options due to the changes in the financial industry,” Faust said.
Students have stepped up their activism in the last decade, energized by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Obama’s candidacy, said Andrew Furco, an associate professor of educational policy and administration at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis.
“Young people have more of a social conscience now, or they’re being encouraged to develop one,” said Furco, who runs the school’s Office for Public Engagement.””
No more jobs on Wall Street = interest in other careers and the schools want a pat on the back for this?
