Statement by NYU Provost David Mclaughlin On Regents’ Vote On NYU and Poly

June 24, 2008
N-494, 2007-08

“NYU is very gratified by today’s vote by the New York State Regents that enables NYU and Polytechnic University to move forward with their partnership. Our two institutions will be far stronger connected than either would be on its own.

“This is a great day for NYU, for Poly, and for New York. For NYU, it reconnects the University to an engineering research and education capacity we have not had for over three decades, offering wonderful new opportunities for NYU faculty and students. For Poly, it connects a venerable school of engineering and technology to a national research university, thereby drawing in students and faculty from across the country and across the world; moreover, it significantly broadens the range of academic activities and facilities to which Poly students and faculty will now have access. And for New York, this important step forward in the relationship between NYU and Poly holds the prospect of sparking a major advancement of our city’s stature as a world capital for science, technology and engineering.”
