Yesterday FASP sent out another note to the community containing many of their familiar attacks on NYU’s direction. It ended with this comment:
“We conclude by adding that we represent the faculty, not only as opponents of the Sexton Plan per se, but----far more important----as professors, bound always by our ethical duty, and our intellectual responsibility, to distinguish fact from error, truth from lie.”
--FASP Letter of Sept 19, 2013
So, it seems only fitting to point out that many of their core assertions contain errors of fact and conflation of issues.
FASP claims that the University loan program favors the University administrators and drains the budget. Here’s a key problem with what they imply: the loan program does not cost the University. In fact it earns NYU a small return.
