A group of New York University faculty are demanding in an open letter released Tuesday that Martin Lipton, chairman of the institution’s board of trustees, resign from the position he’s held for 14 years.
NYU Faculty Against the Sexton Plan, a group of more than 400 faculty members, has vocally opposed the university’s expansion effort, and on Tuesday issued a lengthy letter laying out their grievances with Lipton and NYU president John Sexton, touching on a slew of controversies from the past few years.
“This is not a step that we take lightly,” the group wrote. “We are well aware of your long dedication to NYU’s betterment, and your many services on its behalf. It is because, as faculty, we share your dedication to the university that we feel obliged to take this step — and to explain, precisely, why we are now taking it.”
