Most international grad students in US enrolled in master’s programs – The Council of Graduate Schools has released its report on enrolment in US graduate programs and for the first time has broken out the data by degree level. The data show that the vast majority (77%) of first-time international graduate students were enrolled in master’s and certificate programs, but proportions varied by country of origin. First time Indian and Saudi Arabian students were most likely to be enrolled in master’s programs, but first time South Korean students were most likely to pursue doctoral study. Nearly eight of ten international graduate applications in Fall 2015 came from either China or India. Engineering remains the most popular field again this year, but computer science and mathematics are quickly catching up. Chronicle of Higher Education | Times Higher Education | Full Report

Independent reviewer to examine UBC’s response to sexual assault complaints – UBC has hired Paula Butler, a Vancouver labour and employment lawyer, to examine the institution’s response to concerns of sexual harassment and sexual assault raised by some students last month. A summary of the report from the investigation will be publicly released in February, according to Sara-Jane Finlay, UBC’s Associate Vice President, Equity and Inclusion. “We had recognized that this had been an incredibly complex case. We wanted to have someone independent come in and look at the policy and process, and ensure that it served us in the best way possible,” said Finlay. Globe and Mail | CBC (CP) | UBC

uToronto committee recommends partial divestment – A University of Toronto advisory committee, created by President Meric Gertler, has recommended that the institution divest from fossil fuel companies that “blatantly disregard” efforts to combat climate change. The committee singled out ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, and Peabody Energy (the world’s largest coal producer) as “clear examples” of companies that uToronto should sell its shares in. The process of reviewing the recommendation is already underway. “I will conduct due diligence as appropriate, and I will respond to the report sometime in the new year,” said Gertler. “In the meantime, I hope and expect that the report will draw attention and close study across our broad community.” Financial Post | Globe and Mail | Toronto Star | Hamilton Spectator (CP) | uToronto | Full Report
