Update on Academic and Financial Planning
March 05, 2013
I am pleased to announce that the Full Faculty of The School of Art at The Cooper Union voted earlier today to adopt the proposals submitted to the President and presented to The Board of Trustees on December 5, 2012.
The language of the vote follows:
The Faculty of The School of Art votes to endorse the vote taken by the Full-time faculty on Feb. 28, 2013, which was forwarded to the Dean of the School of Art, the President, and the Board of Trustees, and votes to adopt the attached proposals.
The Art School's report, along with those of the other schools, will be reviewed by the full Board at the Board meeting tomorrow. The Board will also consider other options to ensure financial sustainability while also building a future characterized by academic excellence and a distinctive vision. As I have indicated in my previous memo, the details surrounding all major decisions will be announced later in the month; however, the Board will issue a memo following the Board meeting to communicate the decisions that are made on March 6th.
