CTY to guide British
Boiled down to a simple form, the vision of the Johns
Hopkins Center for Talented Youth is that no country can
afford to let academically gifted children fall through the
cracks. Across the "pond," that message is being heard loud
CTY, which already has helped develop
programs in Ireland and Spain, will now serve as the model
for Great Britain's new National Academy for Gifted and
Talented Youth, a British government-sponsored program to
provide services and advanced courses for the top 5 percent
of English elementary and secondary students. CTY will
assist the University of Warwick in the academy's formation
and talent search.
Tuitions are set for next
Tuition for Homewood undergraduates will climb just over
4.5 percent this fall, the second-smallest increase in
percentage terms in 28 years.
The $1,180 increase, to $27,390, was
approved at the February meeting of the board of trustees.
In dollars, it is the smallest increase in four years.
The 4.5 percent increase next year for
Homewood's nearly4,000 full-time undergraduates--which also
applies to Homewood's full-time graduate students--is down
significantly from this year's 5.1 percent and 5.4 percent
the year before. In each of those years, the increase
included $330 to cover operating costs of the Mattin Center,
hich opened last year, and the student recreation center,
new this year. This year's was the final tuition increase
pegged specifically to the opening of the two new centers.
Speakers to look at 'Capitalism in
U.S. Sen. Russell Feingold, a Democrat from Wisconsin and a
member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, comes to
Homewood next Monday, March 4, as the first speaker in the
Johns Hopkins 2002 Symposium on Foreign Affairs.
The student-organized symposium enters its
fifth year featuring nine speakers at seven events during
March and April and focuses on the theme "Paragon or
Paradox? Capitalism in the Contemporary World."
