Clarifications! Dec 13. 2012 | Comments (0)
Not everyone will agree with the petition and thats okay! Just a few points I'd like to emphasize:
1. This is a ROUGH draft and not a PRECISE inclusion of everyone's points. PLEASE EDIT, this is supposed to be for anyone concerned and every contribution is vital to the cause.
2. We are actively participating and demanding TRANSPARENCY. The fact that this faculty assembly was not known to us with motives unknown to us AND, from what I know, 3 plans are already designed. The discussion/vote will solidify the curriculum, but how can we let that be if we don't even know these plans? We are simply letting ourselves to be seen.
3. These are by no means offensive or a call to action. Like it directly states, these are a list of GRIEVANCES that we are asking for serious consideration. We are not statistics, herds of sheep, or bundles of money ready to be handed over for the mass expansion of NYU.
Do not let yourself be caught up and STUCK in this major. We are not a source of revenue for NYU, this is our education that's costing us time, money, and effort. We need to show that we are genuinely concerned with these issues and if you disagree with certain aspects of the petition or if something is missing, voice it. Please. And if you are happy with the major, we are very happy for you and genuinely glad but if you sympathize with our cause, that'd be even better.
Thank you guys, for your patience and consideration. It's really important to many of us and your respect/tolerance is truly appreciated.
