I was made aware that many in the Cooper community do not know about the following online petition (MoveOn). I am posting the details of an email being circulated at MIT.
Dear colleagues and students.
The Cooper Union’s founding principle that education should be “as free as air and water” is in danger. As the board of trustees prepares to vote on whether or not the school will remain tuition free, please tell President Bharucha that you believe in Peter Cooper’s ideals and that Cooper Union needs to stay free!
So I signed a petition to Dr. Jamshed Bharucha, Cooper Union President, which says:
“Peter Cooper’s mission is necessary more now than ever: Vote to keep Cooper Union as free as air and water!”
