Message from Dean Shoop -- June 15, 2020
Dear School of Engineering Community,
I would like to begin a series of town-hall conversations with the entire engineering community focused on understanding our individual and collective responsibilities and what concrete steps we can take to eradicate racism in the School of Engineering.
On June 1st, 70 students, faculty, alumni, and administration held a town hall with the goal being to bring the whole Cooper community together to formulate concrete short-term and long-term plans of action for becoming an actively anti-racist institution. A student letter addressed to the administration of The Cooper Union and delivered on June 8, 2020 is intended to serve as the beginning of a series of conversations needed to foster and transform The Cooper Union into an actively anti-racist institution.
The details for this town-hall including the date, time and instructions for joining will be distributed separately by Ms. Nori Perez.
Please consider joining us in this very important dialog.
