Impending demise of Yale-NUS

I have been reading about the impending demise of Yale-NUS. I cannot understand how this university can come to such a tragic end. Did those in power take into consideration the well-being and interest of its students?

I had reservations before it all began. In fact, I objected to the setting up of the university. Warwick University had turned down the invitation before Yale’s acceptance. That said, when I visited the campus a few years ago, I was impressed, not only with its beautiful surroundings (which is so unlike NUS) but also with the students. I changed my mind and thought that all is well and I was wrong to object to its setting up.

But now, this has happened, I feel sorry for the students and the staff.

I cannot believe that the government has nothing to do with this demonic decision. The secretive manner in which the leaders of the university have handled the matter is simply shocking. They do not behave like educated human beings.

This government had in the past, shut down the University of Singapore and the Nanyang University. Yale-Nus is the third university soon to be shut down. This government should come clean. The public is entitled to know the real reasons for the closure of Yale-Nus.

    Sooner or later Multi-Tasking and Most Talented Inner Circus Member of Mai Hum, IndraKneeJerk who is the LEEder of the House of Cards, World Class Minister in the PMO(Puki Ministry Office)cum 2nd Minister for Finance and National Development cum MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC, WILL SPEAK IN PARLEEMENT on the Holee Reason for the Impending Demise of Yale-NUS!

    Hopefully, CCS(Cotton Comes from Shits), the Current World Class Minister for Education is NOT like LJ General Ng Jung-Un, the Current Umbrage Indian Chief of SPH(SinKapore Puki Holdings)that EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES, DIES!

    Advanced Condolences to Yale-NUS!

    THE DEATH OF YALE-NUS is the death of LEE-jiapore. PAPpypolitics is burying liberal thinking and the last escape route to innovative thinking outside the dead skull establishment.

    I REMEMBER one of Australia’s top university – the University of New South Wales – was in Singapore and DESPITE LOADS AND LOADS OF FINANCIAL INCENTIVES from EDB to stay, they left and never look back.

    Australian universities are known to be hotbeds of liberal cultures and thinking – tens of thousands of universities’students across Australia were engaged in unrelenting protests against the Vietnam war 5 decades ago.

  • Conscription makes the diff:

    Why did the Australian students protest against the Vietnam war?
    Why did the US students protest against the Vietnam war?

    Conscription made the difference. Young men protested. Their personal lives were at stake.

    Why nobody protested against Iraq war and Afghan wars? The modern governments have become smarter. They don’t conscript soldiers. University students continue to enjoy life while the willing and not so willing soldiers die in foreign lands.

  • too much liberal thinking:

    //Australian universities are known to be hotbeds of liberal cultures and thinking//

    aiyoh. sinkie land is all about 158th media standard with a lot of institutions with vested interest which cannot afford to have too much liberal thinking (the very very liberal thinking ??) starting to question this and that lar ???

    in the name of security and harmony, the high ranking of 158th standard must be maintained – but open-leg white wayang culture which perhaps does not conflict with / result in security and harmony matters for the white monkey idiots is still ok and acceptable lar ?????

  • Something Is Very Wrong!:

    Remember Mr. Goodyear? Left also. Many Sar-Tem-Long went unnoticed by locals. Why locals cannot see, foreigners can see?

    This kind of actively involved and thinking cohorts, they don’t want. Animal-farm very obedient and never ask question despite knowing is wrong type, they welcome!

    Now you know why we never and ever have s Nobel Prize winner. Locals are “discouraged, fixed and subdued” not to put on the thinking cap and question.

    can any bro or sis with inside information enlighten?

    our guess is the Yale folks back home who dissented against lending the great Yale name to a pap setup has won the day.

    Perhaps, when PSP WP form New Government, we can solicit the remarriage. in the mean time, as Singaporeans, we think it is a great disservice to Yale for it to be associated with a dirty tricks regime and very S$m money faced one too.

    On a side note. Yale is a great institution. Liberal, as all great institutions must be. so when pap nus was ranked higher than Yale, we shook our head because this higher ranking is fake.

    imagine. pap nus higher than Yale?

    @ Conscription makes the diff:

    My TAKE OF THAT is both yes and no, MORE NO THAN YES. Nearly 60,000 Australians were conscripted for short term rotational military duty in Vietnam from 1965 to 1975 – roughly a decade.

    Conscription makes the diff: Conscription made the difference. Young men protested. Their personal lives were at stake.

    Why nobody protested against Iraq war and Afghan wars? The modern governments have become smarter. They don’t conscript soldiers. University students continue to enjoy life while the willing and not so willing soldiers die in foreign lands.

    For much of the Australian involvement there, OZZIES were not engaged in combat action of frontline battlefield joining the US/South Vietnamese in firefights. The result is only 521 deaths and over 3,000 injured mainly as a result of Vietcong attacks – I met one OZ Vietnam war veteran wounded in that war.

    Not every male University is conscripted via ballot draw and fitness for combat theatre. In fact, it involved only a very tiny minority of male students only.

    The mass protest I saw on the streets has BOTH GENDERS – male and female (not conscripted at all) and the scale of angry protests were visibly escalating towards the end of the war after US KENT STATE UNIVERSITY MASSACRE OF NON-PROTESTING STUDENTS ON CAMPUS AND SIMILAR ANGRY ERUPTION OF PROTEST AROUND THE WORLD AFTER THE RELEASE OF THE NOTORIOUS PENTAGON PAPER and news leakage of the disgraceful My Lai massacre of innocent women and babies by the US military.

  • MindsthinkHeartsfeelAnusshit:

    “It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks. The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.”

  • Uncle Lim:

    Initially, there was opposition to the setting up of Yale in Singapore from some Yale staff given SG authoritarian government.

    It turned out their misgivings were right.

    Yale-NUS became an illiberal college instead of a liberal one.

    Once they are out of the country, Yale staff will reveal the real reason for the closure.

    SG is a de facto dictatorship.
