1982 Interview with CUNY Chancellor Joseph S. Murray

Listen to former CUNY Chancellor Joseph S. Murray defend the policy of Open Admissions at CUNY. It’s so brilliant. When asked skeptically about the quality of the students that it would allow to have access to college, he responds: “Harvard took, after all, for three hundred years, the rather dull sons of the very rich and managed to survive and do rather well.” I can’t even. ZING.
