Hunter Students Protest Discriminatory Teaching in the Dance Department

HUNTER COLLEGE–Students held a sit-in at the Thomas Hunter building to demand the immediate removal of dance professors accused of teaching discriminatory curriculums on Monday, Oct.24. 

Together, students, faculty and alumni listened to open critique and protest of Dance Professor Lori Brungard’s “Global Dance History” course. This marked the second student-led sit-in organized this semester, as part of a weeks-long effort to get Professor Brungard removed. Hunter’s Chair of Dance Paul Dennis, MFA Director Maura Nguyen Donohue and Professor Brungard were all present. Several other faculty members also joined and sat amongst the swarm of students who lined the hallways of the sixth floor.
