Statement from John Beckman Regarding Gallatin Vote

May 3, 2013

“While the resolution passed, the majority of faculty did not vote to support the measure. Higher education is undergoing enormous change and John Sexton is an innovator - this can elicit division in any community, and certainly has at NYU.

"Regardless of whether the votes are positive, such as the Law School’s, or negative, such as today’s, John Sexton – who enjoys the trustees full and unequivocal backing -- will stay focused on supporting NYU’s research and teaching missions, on sustaining NYU’s extraordinary academic trajectory, and on continuing to take steps to enhance faculty consultation and involvement in University decision-making.”
