THE NEW SCHOOL
David E. Van Zandt, President

November 25, 2011

I am relieved to announce that the remaining protesters at 90 Fifth Avenue left voluntarily and safely on Friday morning. The maintenance and security staff will be working hard over the weekend to open the Student Study Center for New School use on Monday at 9 am. I am proud of the way that we as a community arrived at a peaceful resolution to this situation. In the process, we have reaffirmed that acts that are hostile, destructive, or otherwise antithetical to this university's core principles have no place in our climate of open discussion and debate.

I thank those who helped to bring about this non-violent outcome.

David
