Faculty and students at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School preparing to hear Visa CEO Charles W. Scharf speak at their graduation ceremony on Wednesday should be aware of his company's unsavory partnership with the National Rifle Association (NRA). Credit card giant Visa's affiliate program helps organizations market financial products to their members. Purchases made with the NRA Visa Card, however, also fund "legislative action in support of … Second Amendment rights. " In practice, this means Visa is helping to pay for lobbying against common-sense policies like background checks on gun buyers and for dangerous legislation that would force colleges and universities to allow gun on campus against their will.

My congratulations to Bridget Kustin, founder of the Johns Hopkins University Human Rights Working Group, on her commentary ( "JHU's academic 'freedom,' Feb. 25). It took courage to write that op-ed while still a student at Hopkins. While sincerely hoping she does not suffer repercussions, I want to note that academic institutions are either hurting for money or are greedy for it. Universities, even the ones with big endowments, act as though they cannot afford to host intellectual ferment, bold dissent and revolutionary ideas.

Commentator Peter Morici is both right and very wrong ( "Obama's policies divide the nation," Feb. 17). He's right about the need for U.S. jobs, about falling inflation-adjusted wages, about growing income inequality that undermines our core values and discourages job seekers. He's right that government policy should be changed to address these issues. He's wrong on - well, where to begin? He's wrong that gender bias, on balance, favors women and not men in government policies and the workplace.

In an email Saturday to school board members, Dance said he had called the Illinois-based SUPES Academy and told them that he would no longer coach Chicago public school principals.

After more than three years in the courts, Bank of America will pay $39 million to settle a gender bias case in its Merrill Lynch brokerage operation.

The firm's history with minority employees is far from stellar. In the 1970s, the firm settled a suit and agreed to make its workforce more diverse; these initiatives were never fully implemented.
