Kroll Mask

This mask was made by the Graduate Center General Assembly for a "Kroll Monster" costume that was used in a series of agitprop materials to highlight CUNY Chancellor Matthew Goldstein's relationship to Kroll, Inc. CUNY hired this security company to conduct an investigation and produce a report about a November 21, 2011 incident at Baruch College. On this date, NYPD and CUNY security physically attacked and arrested students, faculty, staff, and community members who were attempting to peacefully enter a Board of Trustees public hearing to speak against a 5-year tuition increase.

On May 8, 2012, after the John Jay College Chairman and head of Kroll, Inc., Jules Kroll, donated $2 million to the college, the "Lynn and Jules Kroll Atrium" was unveiled.

On January 4, 2013, Kroll, Inc. released a report absolving CUNY of any wrongdoing in the Baruch College incident.
