“NYU prides itself on being the Global Network University: an educational institution with a bold vision for education that transcends geographical and social borders. Yet when it comes to providing open and equitable access to education for formerly incarcerated students we fall dramatically short of our values. I support Banning the Box because as an educator I know that a quality education is just as much about about what you study as it is about who you study with. For NYU to live up to it’s vision we must ABOLISH THE BOX and eliminate all barriers to admission targeting formerly incarcerated people.”
