Colin MoynihanCooper Union students on Monday after they ended a weeklong sit-in to protest the possibility that undergraduates will eventually be charged tuition. Just before noon on Monday, a group of Cooper Union students picked up their blankets and sleeping bags and left the Peter Cooper Suite on the eighth floor of the institution’s Foundation Building, where they had barricaded themselves a week earlier to protest the possibility of undergraduates being charged tuition for the first time in at least 110 years. The 11 students told supporters that while the administration had not granted their demands — that Cooper Union’s president resign and that it “publicly affirm the college’s commitment to free education” and “democratic decision-making structures” — the weeklong occupation had helped focus attention on the tuition issue, which they said they would continue to address.

Cooper Union students’ fight to preserve the college’s century-plus tradition of free tuition is kicking into gear again, as administrative dithering and blackmail has thrown the new entering class into disarray.

student activism: Cooper Union «

Two of the three schools that make up CU have submitted proposals for integrating tuition into their budgets going forward, but the third — the School of Art — has refused to do so, saying that they will not cooperate with “any solution to The Cooper Union’s current financial crisis that depends, even in part, on tuition compromises and irreversibly damages the ideals of art, education, freedom, and citizenship.”

In retaliation for this act of defiance, Cooper Union president Jamshed Bharucha announced last week that the college would not honor the School of Art’s decisions on its early admission applicants, and would instead inform those applicants that they would be considered as part of the general admissions process later in the spring.

In a victory for students, alumni, and faculty, and a startling reversal for administrators, the Cooper Union board of trustees this week announced that they will retain the college’s free tuition policy while they continue to evaluate Cooper Union’s financial situation.

studentactivism: Cooper Union Is Still Tuition-Free

A vote on a proposal to impose tuition was widely expected at Wednesday’s meeting, with many expecting the trustees to break with the college’s history of free access to all undergraduate admittees. But months of increasingly strong and well-organized opposition from student activists, Cooper Union professors, and alumni groups appear to have made an impact.

Cooper Union Tuition Scandal and Protests

Students hold Saran Wrap representing their demand for more transparency in the board's past and future actions. The Cooper Union financial crisis and tuition protests constitute the events surrounding Cooper Union's announcement that they would begin charging tuition after being a tuition-free school for most of its history. The possible mismanagement of the school's finances and the subsequent reactions of students, faculty, alumni and organized protest groups attracted widespread media attention, and activist groups staged a series of occupations and protests demanding that the school president, Jamshed Bharucha resign, promoting a vote of no confidence, and insisting that the administration address the concerns of students, faculty, alumni and the public.

A Bang, and Then a Whimper: Some Thoughts On the Death of Cooper Union

“As we work together to find new ways to get The Cooper Union onto stable financial ground,” the board chair wrote in a statement released after yesterday’s unprecedented vote to impose tuition, “we will also work together to develop a contemporary mission for the institution.” Got that? The old mission has been retired, but the college still exists, so a new mission must be found. The shame of Cooper Union. The Cooper Union Board of Trustees today managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

The shame of Cooper Union

It was a depressing and yet entirely predictable vote, which resulted in a depressing and yet entirely predictable statement. You might remember the tragedy of Cooper Union — the way in which a unique and irreplaceable institution was destroyed by the inflated egos of overpaid technocrats. Well, after many months of outcry and outrage, a glimpse of hope appeared in December: a detailed and hopeful 54-page Working Group Report was submitted to the board, explaining how the institution could still, amazingly continue without charging tuition.
