New York and Columbia University Professors Work with Project Called “Raising The Bar” that Brings Classes to NYC Bars


Am New York News logoAccording to AM New York News the preeminent daily newspaper in the world’s greatest city… A group of New York students and young creatives have organized a one-night event on April 29 — sponsored by NYU and Columbia University among others — that will bring college professors into 50 city bars for free lectures.

And they’re already planning another night in the summer and possibly expanding to the subway.

“Education should be as visible and evident in the city as New York Fashion Week or when we hear about a cool new exhibition at MoMa,” said Adam Brandenburger, an NYU professor who will be lecturing on game theory at Sweet Water Social in NoHo.

Brandenburger added professors have become increasingly uncomfortable with the notion that access to education is restricted.

The event — to be held mostly in Manhattan and in some Brooklyn spots — is spreading to other cities according to Yali Saar, the project’s creative director.
