N.Y.U. faculty to decide on Sexton no-confidence vote
BY SAM SPOKONY | New York University Arts and Science faculty members will meet on Thurs., Dec. 13 to decide whether or not to conduct a vote of no confidence in N.Y.U. President John Sexton, according to a department-wide e-mail that was forwarded to this newspaper by an anonymous source.
The meeting, which will take place at 2 p.m. in the Kimmel Center, on Washington Square South, will include a vote by all eligible Arts and Science faculty members to determine whether or not a no-confidence vote will in fact be held.
If the initial vote were to pass, the Arts and Science faculty would then hold a vote of no confidence that would be conducted electronically — and anonymously — between Mon., Dec. 17, and midnight Fri., Dec. 21, according to the department e-mail.
Arts and Science is the largest academic community at N.Y.U., comprising the College of Arts and Science, the Graduate School of Arts and Science and the Liberal Studies program. It is one of the 12 schools whose representatives comprise the N.Y.U. Faculty Senators Council.
