NYU’s COVID-19 Reopening Plan Fuels “Inequality And Injustice,” Faculty And Staff Warn – Gothamist

Rebecca Karl, who teaches history at the university, said it felt as if the school was pressuring contract faculty and Ph. D. candidates, who are considered vulnerable since they live in the areas hit hard by COVID-19 and rely on public transportation, to teach in-person this year while tenured faculty, like herself, were given the option to choose if they wanted to teach remotely or not.

“We were very uncomfortable with that kind of inequality and injustice on campus,” she said.
