NEW YORK - Yale University will keep the name of its Calhoun College Dodgers Kirk Gibson Jersey , named after former U.S. Vice President John Calhoun, despite objections by students unhappy with its association with a prominent defender of slavery, the school said on Wednesday.

The Ivy League school in Connecticut, which is among several universities that have recently faced calls to dissociate themselves from symbols associated with racism, said it hoped its decision would encourage the campus to confront the history of slavery.

It also said it would change the title of the officers who lead its 12 undergraduate residential colleges to head of college from master, a term some people connected to slavery.

"We cannot erase American history but we can confront it, teach it, and learn from it," Yale President Peter Salovey said in a statement.

"The decision to retain Calhoun College's name reflects the importance of this vital educational imperative."

Yale also said one of two undergraduate residential colleges under construction would be named for late civil rights activist and 1965 Yale Law School graduate Pauli Murray. The other college will be named for Benjamin Franklin, a founding father and Yale honorary degree recipient.

A recent survey by the university's student newspaper, the Yale Daily News, found that 55 percent of more than 1,700 respondents supported renaming Calhoun College. About 82 percent supported naming at least one of the new residential colleges after a woman or person of color.

Washington - Billionaire Donald Trump pledged Wednesday to unify the fractured Republican Party following a bruising primary season, as he declared the battle for the White House starts now against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump's path to the GOP presidential nomination is clear after his command victory in Indiana's primary Tuesday pushed remaining challengers Ted Cruz and then Ohio Governor John Kasich out of the race.

Their capitulations brought the curtain down on one of the most contentious and chaotic nomination battles in generations, one in which Trump pummelled no fewer than 16 rivals into submission.

"Now we'll unify the party. We're going to get people together," Trump, 69, told Fox News. "I think we'll beat Hillary Clinton."

But with unfavorability ratings among the highest of any modern presidential candidate, and concern within his own party about his temperament, the real estate mogul swiftly sought to assuage concerns about how he would govern.

"I know people aren't sure right now what a President Trump will be like," he told The New York Times.

"But things will be fine. I'm not running for president to make things unstable for the country."
