Old School Becomes New School

Inside Higher Ed

April 17, 2012

The Brooklyn Institute for Social Research doesn't hand out diplomas. Its instructors don't give grades. It doesn't have a building to call its own. No one there cares about your SAT score. And Ajay Singh Chaudhary, the Columbia University doctoral student who founded the institute last year, doesn't want any of those trappings of traditional higher education. What the Brooklyn Institute provides, he hopes, is a place for academics to supplement their pay while conducting research and teaching reasonably priced, high-level classes to adult students of all backgrounds.
