Faculty vs. NYU 2031

New, 19 comments

Not every person opposed to NYU's expansion plans are "anti-building zealots" and "Luddites." A Times opinion piece points out that "23 faculty departments — including economics, history, politics, mathematics, anthropology, art history, sociology and English — have passed resolutions strongly urging Mr. Sexton to drop the plan, all of them unanimous or nearly so." It's an interesting argument that has little to do with buildings or preservation, and more to do with the financial well-being of the university and the future of NYU. [NYT]
