Letter to the Editor of the New York Times: City University: On the Need to Save John Jay and Hostos
In 1975, the New York City fiscal crisis led to efforts by city officials and the CUNY administration to close or merge multiple campuses in order to pay back debt owed to major banks. John Jay College was proposed to merge with Baruch College and Hostos Community College was slated to merge with Bronx Community College in order to dramatically cut spending. The proposals generated massive resistance on the part of students, faculty, and community groups.
