Study: College Women Binge Drink More Often Than Men
U.S. News & World Report
Female college students exceed government-suggested limits on weekly alcohol consumption more often than male students do, according to a new report by researchers at Harvard University. Men and women are starting on something of an uneven playing field. In 1990, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a division of the National Institutes of Health, suggested that men drink a maximum of four drinks daily and 14 drinks weekly. The guidelines for women suggest that they max out at three drinks a day and seven drinks a week.

New ACPA Resource: Accreditation And The Role of the Student Affairs Educator
ACPA
This monograph is a must-read for any student affairs administrator preparing for or entering an accreditation process. Because the focus of regional accreditation agencies has shifted to that of demonstrating student learning both inside and outside the classroom, student affairs professionals are increasingly being asked to participate in, and contribute to, the accreditation process of their institutions. As student affairs practitioners, we are uniquely poised to provide evidence of student learning in the co-curricular environment. This resource, entitled, Accreditation and the Role of the Student Affairs Educator, is available for download at no cost for ACPA members and for $9.95 USD for non-ACPA members.

Students Might Not Be 'Academically Adrift' After All, Study Finds
The Chronicle of Higher Education
Students show substantial gains in learning during college, as measured by a standardized test of critical thinking, according to two studies conducted by the creator of the test. While perhaps not a direct rebuke to Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses, the blockbuster 2011 book that documented what its authors argued was meager learning on campuses, the studies, by the Council for Aid to Education, do offer a sunnier counternarrative.

Cities, MOOCs, Global Networks
Inside Higher Ed
The last several days of higher ed media coverage have been rich with discussions about the tangle of global networks being formed. A case in point is this announcement, by Imperial College London and Zhejiang University, to collaborate on a new initiative in London's White City. Much like the Amsterdam's plans to establish a new university ('On Amsterdam's Plans to Establish a Third University'), and the Cornell-Technion experiment in New York City, these global networks are quite tightly configured and very urban-centered: they are being harnessed to create new spaces of knowledge production to creatively unsettle and hopefully strengthen city-region innovation systems.
