“I support banning the box at NYU and all college admissions processes.  Numerous studies have shown that higher education for formerly incarcerated persons leads to the lowest rates of recidivism.  The problem of mass incarceration is not going to go away by excluding formerly incarcerated persons.  All colleges and universities should take the progressive path by banning the box and being inclusive and not exclusive.”
