Free Education Committee
The Free Education Committee (FEC) of The Cooper Union Board of Trustees was created in 2015. The Committee's focus and responsibility is to, "examine whether Cooper Union can return to a sustainable, full tuition scholarship model that maintains Cooper Union's strong reputation for academic quality within its art, architecture and engineering programs at their historical levels of enrollment." Accordingly, The FEC is to develop and propose a strategic plan to this end.
The members of the FEC are:
- Scott Lerman (A ’81), Chair (Alumni Trustee)
- Stephen Gerard (ME ’67) (Alumni Trustee)
- Taesha Aurora (AR ‘21) (Student Trustee)
- Malcolm King (EE ’97)
