Mentions a few other schools doing significant hiring, including Brown and USC.

It's good NYU and other schools are not expanding by raising tuition on undergraduates. I'm surprised that NYU's endowment did not grow when the stock market did....I thought all schools benefited from it.

Achat:

It depends how the stocks were invested. MIT made susbtantial losses by investing heavily in high techonology stocks.

The first 30 hires joined the faculty this fall.

NYU has a vision. It has vastly improved some of its departments already (e.g., economics and political science), and now with an emphasis on making a "core" of liberal arts faculty (across humanities, social sciences, and sciences) it has a chance to really become something. I think NYU is making a winning move.

I agree -- twenty years ago NYU wasn't considered a particularly selective school, and it has really improved its reputation. I haven't followed it closely, so I'm not sure how, but I think it is definitely going in the right direction. The fact that the neighborhood it's in has improved hasn't hurt, either.
