In Response to “A Seat in the Honors Academy”

Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson responded to Jesi Taylor's and Cheryl Olivieri's concerns:

"Ms. Taylor’s allegation that the Honors Academy is a 'hostile and exclusionary environment' is deeply troubling. I am committed to building an inclusive academic community across all sectors of the College, one that prepares students for life in an increasingly diverse society. I want to assure everyone that the College will investigate the charges Taylor makes and take corrective action where appropriate.

Although Ms. Olivieri’s time at Brooklyn College preceded me, I understand that in April 2016 she filed a related discrimination complaint with the New York City Commission on Human Rights. On October 25, 2016, after a full investigation, the Commission dismissed the complaint as without merit.

We take our legal and ethical obligations to provide a non-discriminatory educational setting and a non-discriminatory workplace seriously."

A Seat In The Honors Academy

Lisa Schwebel, Director of the BC Honors Academy, responded to Jesi Taylor's recent op-ed: "Honors Academy directors, faculty, advisors, and staff have zero tolerance for discrimination. The Honors lounge is designed as a space of hospitality and safety for all honors program students. We are grateful to Ms. Taylor for bringing this to our attention and welcome the opportunity to meet with her and other students to make changes and improve the Honors Academy experience for all students."
