No Occupy Wall Street class at Columbia

The Columbia Bwog is reporting that Columbia University will not offer a course on Occupy Wall Street. A proposed course had attracted controversy because the professor set to teach it said that students would be working in the field on OWS-related campaigns. Now it seems administrators never approved the class in the first place:

Yesterday, we told you that the Anthropology Department’s recently-announced class on the Occupy Wall Street movement was on the ropes. We have now received what is more or less an official confirmation of the cancellation of the course, at least for the coming semester. According to Mia Mendicino, the Coordinator for Academic Affairs at Columbia College, the course “has not been submitted to the COI for an official review,” which effectively means that the attempt has been abandoned (for now). It looks like The Man has won. But if we’ve learned anything from the OWS movement, it’s that nothing can keep the 99% down. Except maybe winter.
