Big Three (colleges)

The Big Three is a historical term used in the United States to refer to Harvard University, Yale University, and Princeton University. The phrase Big Three originated in the 1880s, when these three colleges dominated college football. In 1906, these schools formed a sports compact that formalized a three-way football competition which began in 1878. This early agreement predated the Ivy League by exactly half a century. The rivalry remains intense today, though the three schools are no longer national football powerhouses, and schools continue to refer to their intercollegiate competitions as "Big Three" or "Harvard-Princeton-Yale" meets.

                                               

Borrow Direct

Borrow Direct is an interlibrary loan service that allows member university students, faculty, and staff with library borrowing privileges and active e-mail accounts to borrow books directly from the libraries of the other member universities. The patrons home library bears the cost of the service and there is no charge to patrons. The service began within and slowly spread to all the members of the Ivy League, and has expanded since 2011 with the inclusion of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to non-Ivy institutions. Only print monographs are eligible for Borrow Direct; patrons may not request journals serials, microfilm, electronic resources, compact discs, digital video discs, or other non-print media. The Borrow Direct system will not allow patrons to place requests for items that the library believes to be available for checkout locally. Items requested are normally delivered within four business days after the request is placed, with an initial loan period of six weeks, with one renewal. Items may be recalled by the owning library at any time.

                                               

Ivy Council

The Ivy Council is a 5013 federal tax-exempt organization of student government leaders, student organization leaders, and students at large from the colleges and universities of the Ivy League. The Ivy Council was established in 1993 by members of the Ivy League student governments in order to facilitate effective communication between the student governments of their respective institutions and to provide a unified voice for the Ivy League student governments. In its inaugural year, Ivy Council was led by future U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who served as its first president. Since then, the Ivy Council has expanded the scope of its activity both nationally and internationally with programs such as the Ivy Leadership Summit and student-exchange opportunities in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

                                               

List of Ivy League public policy schools

The Ivy League public policy schools outlines the universities within the Ivy League that offer public policy or public administration degrees. These public policy schools often provide Bachelor of Arts, Master of Public Policy, Master of Public Administration, Master of International Affairs, or Doctor of Philosophy in Public Policy and/or Administration degrees. The public policy programs at the Ivy League rank as some of the best in the world. The oldest program for the study of public policy and administration began at Princeton University in 1930, founded as the School of Public and International Affairs. The schools mission was to prepare students for "leadership in public and international affairs" in accordance with President Woodrow Wilson who desired a school that could train students for public service. Harvard University soon followed with their own school, the Graduate School of Public Administration, in 1936. The most recently established school of government was at Yale University through the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs in 2010. The goal of the Jackson Institute was to enhance the universitys current offerings of social science research and courses. The Institute currently specializes in international affairs, but is planning to expand to domestic policy in the near future. These schools have served as the model for other programs around the world, most notably at Oxford University. The Blavatnik School of Government was founded in 2010 and is the first of its kind in Europe. It currently offers MPP and DPhil in Public Policy degrees. Pundits believe the Blavatnik School seeks to differentiate itself with a more well-rounded curriculum, thereby competing with the American monopoly on public policy schools.

Y Tu Tambien

Y Tu Tambien is a project ran in New York City to aid low-income students through the college admission process. It is coordinated by members of the Inter-Ivy Latino Alumni Council, which was developed in early 2012 as a result of an All-Ivy Latino Alumni Mixer held at the University of Pennsylvania. Y Tu Tambien regularly holds workshops helping high school students format their college essays, prepare for college interviews, and even select which colleges to apply to. The organization has just recently began its IILAC Fellowship Program, under which it selects a few number of high school under class-men to provide individualized mentorship throughout their high school careers. Although it is run by the Ivy League, its mission statement clearly states it helps all students applying to any college institution.
