As the sociocultural and political conversations on racial discrimination rage on in America in , one does not have to look far to discover the long and elaborate streams of literature detailing the negative psychological consequences of discrimination.
Universities in China and South Korea are surging in the international race for world-class status, as schools in the East Asian nations are replacing U. The research analyzed the effects of government policy on universities across the globe and found that China and Korea raised their world rankings through increased government funding and a focus on research programs in science, technology, engineering and math.
