Jared Kushner, senior advisor to his father-in-law, President Trump, owns property at NYU, including the lounge in NYU Law and the Puck Building.

Miranda Levingston, Deputy News Editor

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close economic advisor, not only graduated from NYU Law in 2007, but he also owns property throughout the university.

The Puck Building at 295 Lafayette St. has office spaces dedicated to the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and the Department of Sociology, and it is owned by Kushner Companies, a real estate firm co-owned by Kushner and his father. His parents Seryl and Charles Kushner additionally donated a student lounge to NYU Law’s Vanderbilt Hall at 40 Washington Square South.

While NYU’s ties to Trump have troubled students this past semester, in an official statement regarding international students issued by NYU President Andrew Hamilton, he alerted the NYU community to the steps the university would take to ensure the safety and protection of its students from countries included in Trump’s travel ban.

Following Trump’s election to the presidency, Kushner’s former NYU Law classmates wrote him a letter that urged him to influence the Trump administration in in positive ways: addressing environmental concerns; assisting the Muslim, immigrant, Black and LGBTQ communities; and bringing greater advocacy to help other vulnerable populations.

Shawn Amsler, a Schack Institute of Real Estate adjunct instructor in the School of Professional Studies, said that the university’s code of ethics should match the ethics of its current students and alumni.

“It is important for a university to adhere to the ethics deemed appropriate by the two biggest constituencies — the students and the alumni,” Amsler said. “Now, on which side of that fence [Kushner] falls on, I can say that I am not well enough informed to be able to make a determination.”

Amsler also said that he believes the university should only bring its business to corporations whose ethics align with its own.

SPS freshman Ryan Jackloski studies real estate, and he thinks NYU has no grounds to discontinue business with Kushner, unless there is evidence that he is directly associated with unethical policy.

“If we could prove Kushner’s influence on Trump or point to a specific policy he had authority over, and it was something that went against the values that NYU stands for — in that case I think that NYU could take a more firm stance and consider pulling out of office space from the building,” Jackloski said.  “But, I think it would be something that would have to be considered super carefully — it would have to go through a ton of different committees to even be considered.”

University Spokesperson John Beckman said that the university is grateful for the generous past donations from the Kushner family and that NYU does not apply politics to business. He also said that the agreement, which gives office space to Wagner faculty members in the Puck Building, was enacted before any member of the Trump or Kushner family entered the political world.

“We do not apply a political litmus test to those with whom we do business, but rather evaluate a business agreement on its business terms,” Beckman said. “In any case, it is irrelevant here — the university’s renting of property owned by the Kushner family pre-dates the presidential election by over a decade.”

    Hi everyone! Dr Unity is the best spell caster to help fix your broken relationship or get your Ex-Lover back fast,Read my testimony and contact him now:[email protected]
    My ex and i had been to gether for 3 years. We both are mature adult (i’m 33 and he is 44). I broke up with him at the end of January because of the constant quarrels and unmet emotional need. Not long after, he found out that during the period, i met a guy friend whom i contacted pretty often because initially i was looking for advice from male perspective. My ex was desperate and begged me to be back with him for 3 weeks in February. He told me that he knew where he had gone wrong and willing to change. I rejected him but told him that i need time and space to think about it. I was considering to give him that chance. On the last week of February, he begged me for the last time. Few days after when i wanted to get back to him, he told me that he found someone else (a girl in vietnam from vietnam dating website) and that he did not want to get back to me anymore. I was so upset but thought that nothing much of it. We still keep in contact once in awhile thereafter but i didn’t beg him anymore. 3 weeks after, i found out that he had flown to vietnam to meet the girl. Yesterday i found out as well that he posted pictures of them on Facebook (he unfriended me but his friend told me about the pictures). I was devastated. The new girl looks alot like me! Plus knowing how well he cares about his image to be the good guy, it took a great deal of thoughts to post those photos knowing that people knew he just break up with me… is what he has a rebound? What do i do to get him back? I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much. I became very worried and needed help. as i was browsing through the internet, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help get ex back fast and stop a divorce or breakup and so on , So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (return Love spell) for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came back to me crying and begging for my forgiveness. Today I’m so happy and i want to recommend this great spell caster to anyone that truly needs an urgent solution to his or her broken relationships and marriage. Simply contact the great “Dr.Unity” If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you., email him at: [email protected] ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

    I’m so excited. I cant believe it! Dr.Unity your love spell casting really worked! My ex-husband is back after he left me and the kids, he sent me an SMS last night, wanting us to get back together again…and here we are! Yes, I’m extremely happy that we are living together again. My name is Renee Shine, I live in United Kingdom. My husband and I have been married for about 6 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn’t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Three days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. if you have any problem contact him, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, This is his details Email him at: [email protected] ,Call or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His web site: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

    Testimony on how i got my LOAN from [email protected]

    I’m Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i’m thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don’t want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: [email protected] OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
