How Computers Are Changing Academe

New technology long ago transformed the way science is conducted, but now it’s the turn of the humanities. By hitting the right computer keys, faculty and students alike can gain access to many times the amount of information available only a few years ago, and in only a fraction of the time.

Yale’s first female athletes had to make do with substandard facilities, borrowed uniforms, and a fair amount of abuse from their male counterparts. A quarter of a century later, the women have their own half of the field house, an enviable win-loss record, and the status of full-fledged competitors.

A multi-pronged strategy for improving Yale’s physical surroundings is getting a boost from some cooperative ventures undertaken with the city of New Haven and the state of Connecticut.
