Yale get­ting less ‘man’ly

New York Post - - NEWS - Post Staff

Yale is drop­ping gen­der­spe­cific words like “fresh­man” and “up­per­class­man” from its of­fi­cial pub­li­ca­tions and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, start­ing in the next aca­demic year.

They’ll be known as “first year’’ and “up­per level’’ stu­dents re­spec­tively, the Yale News said. But stu­dents and oth­ers on cam­pus will still be able to use the tra­di­tional ter­mi­nol­ogy.

Other schools that made sim­i­lar po­lit­i­cally cor­rect name changes in­clude Dart­mouth, Cor­nell and Columbia, the school pa­per said.
