There is no such thing as “reverse discrimination.” The headline of The GW Hatchet’s March 4 editorial (p. 4) erroneously referred to an instance at Boston College of the denial of male students’ civil rights on the basis of sex under this absurd, illogical term.

The Elliott School of International Affairs received nearly $5 million in grants this month to build up different components of its East Asian studies program.
