“has not taken any meaningful action”
NYU set up a sort of social justice bat phone to report incidents of bias but some of them are claiming it doesn’t respond.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Student paper editorial: University ‘Bias Response Line’ established, but unresponsive
Despite the creation of a “Bias Response Line” for students to report offensive and inappropriate situations at New York University, the editorial board of the campus student newspaper is claiming that the line is unresponsive to their needs.
In a piece published in Washington Square News, NYU’s student newspaper, the editorial board claims that the Bias Response Line is strongly pushed at NYU, as it is advertised on every course syllabus and throughout orientation for new students. Still, they argue that the program “has not taken any meaningful action.”
According to the article, NYU has not appropriately disciplined professors who have been reported as offensive via the Bias Response Line and cites a recent case where a student reported a professor for perceived transphobia.
“Last semester, a transgender Steinhart junior August Enzer reported psychology professor Edgar Coons for alleged transphobia,” the editors write. “The BRL relayed the case to CAS human resources and Gene Jarrett, Seryl Kushner Dean of the College of Arts and Science, but the BRL has not been transparent about the outcome of the case. The lack of transparency by the BRL makes it impossible to hold NYU and its constituents accountable.”
