Reform at CUNY: A Discussion with Dorothy Lang
Iannone, Carol
Academic Questions, v18 n1 p17-25 Mar 2004
In 1999, trustees, led by Herman Badillo, were struggling mightily to shore up the City University of New York, a system beleaguered academically and financially after decades of open admissions. Badillo and his allies enjoyed key successes. "AQ" now has the opportunity to recap that struggle by interviewing NAS member and committed battler for CUNY reform, Dorothy Lang. We find that much remains to be done, but at least the culture at the largest municipal university in the world has changed to one that welcomes higher standards. (Contains 1 note.)
