'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Duquesne University officials on Wednesday announced an initiative to coordinate and expand the university's online course offerings.

Duquesne Provost Timothy Austin said the initiative grew out of a study the university started earlier this year on how to draw on its strengths to establish a distinctive presence in the “increasingly critical world of online education.”

The school is launching a national search for a leader to head the new initiative and announced a plan to close its School of Leadership and Professional Advancement, which offers most of its programs online, by August 2015.

“There are logical homes for these programs in the schools of business, liberal arts and law,” said Dr. Timothy Austin, provost. “All of our schools today sponsor their own high-quality online programs. In light of the university's move to establish a more centralized approach to e-learning, it makes sense to consolidate all of our online offerings in each discipline.”

“Taken together, the changes we are announcing today will result in a wider array of academically rigorous online programs to complement our on-campus offerings,” said Austin.
