NYU journalism department cuts ties to NYU Abu Dhabi

NEW YORK (AP) — The journalism department at New York University is cutting its ties to NYU's Abu Dhabi campus over two professors being denied work visas by the United Arab Emirates.

The majority of senior faculty at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute sent a letter to NYU President Andrew Hamilton saying they were dismayed that journalism professor Mohamad Bazzi and Middle East politics professor Arang Keshavarzian had been denied visas. The Nov. 2 letter also said they were disappointed in Hamilton's handling of the situation, and his not speaking out publicly about the situation.

NYU spokesman Matt Nagel said the school shared faculty concerns over the visas being denied, but that cutting ties with the Abu Dhabi campus "only punishes our fellow students and faculty."
