Quietly, state board approves NYU's absorption of Polytechnic

Yes, the State Board of Regents, as expected, approved New York University's no-money-down absorption of Brooklyn's Polytechnic University. Yes, the dailies missed the story. Polytech brass are enthused, calling it a "partnership," a term also used by the NYU provost.

Polytech alumni say a group of alumni, former and current trustees and faculty members, independent of the Alumni Association, filed a Petition to stay the vote and remove the Polytechnic Board of Trustees under Education Law 226(4).
