Just before NYU’s director of K-12 STEM Education, Ben Esner, introduced Chancellor Fariña, he unfolded a T-shirt and held it up to a group assembled at the NYU School of Engineering on Thursday morning.
The grey T-shirt read: “Engineering is _____.” Esner asked Fariña to fill in the blank.
“Is great,” he suggested. “Or, ‘saves the world.’ ”
But Fariña had her own end the to sentence: “Gets you jobs,” she said.
