As you may be painfully aware, NYU aims to increase its space in New York City by approximately six million square feet by the year 2031. Aside from swallowing you whole and likely forcing you to move to, say, Delaware, expansion plans include a possible university center on Governors Island, Washington Square News reports today. Why? "We're space starved," NYU President John Sexton said.
Here's more from the article:
Sexton said he would like NYU to begin executing its 2031 plans as soon as possible. He anticipates the opening proposal to be completed in mid-January and construction for the first project to be completed by the following summer.
NYU hopes the 2031 expansion will make the degrees of NYU alumni more viable.
"It's our task to make sure that the value of your degree becomes more and more potent," Sexton said. "From now on, I don't want to refer to us as New York University. I want to refer to us as 'the New York University.' "
