No Confidence Vote For NYU Prez John Sexton Ends Today, Results To Be Announced Shortly
It's been quite the newsworthy week for NYU.
Since Monday, President John Sexton has undergone a no confidence vote by the faculty at the University. This comes after the New York Times ran a piece detailing the inner drama of the school's hierarchy, as well as Sexton's complex personality as a charmer and provocateur. And, of course, fellow Voice scribe Nick Pinto had his in-depth report a few weeks ago that dove into the battle over the school's global presence and here at home with NYU 2031 - an expansion plan that has West Villagers up in arms.
Well, today, the no confidence vote will come to an end.
The faculty is expected to announce the results some time this afternoon. That result will determine what the faculty has to say about their leader's term in office and NYU as a whole. The decision could have enormous consequences for the world-renowned University and, as the Times and Pinto pointed out, higher education as a whole.
The Voice will have the updates here.
