Come On, Brooklyn Polytechnic Students: NYU Student Protest Today

In the last year NYU began a series of "ambitious and controversial projects," says the Politics As Puppetry blog, including the merger with Polytechnic University in Brooklyn.

So today a group of NYU student activists will kick off the 2008-2009 school year by launching a campaign called Take Back NYU!, demanding that the NYU Administration increase campus democracy by disclosing the school’s annual budget, endowment investments and by placing a student on the Board of Trustees.

A press conference with NYU student activists will take place on the southeast corner of Washington Square Park Tuesday at 11 a.m.

This will be a great opportunity for Brooklyn's Polytech students to, you know, get the feel of their new school. No word on whether or not a shuttle bus from the Brooklyn campus will be available . . .

It should be pointed out that seedy academic corruption seems to run quite deep at NYU. Take, for example, the allegations of plagiarism that have surfaced against the Judaica department chairman; they were initially made in an Israeli newspaper years ago, but the matter appears to have been hushed up and never investigated, in violation of the university's own regulations.
