Lauren Duca’s NYU Students File Formal Complaint About Former Teen Vogue Columnist’s ‘Lack of Professionalism’

When it was announced that Teen Vogue columnist and Tucker Carlson Foe Lauren Duca was teaching an NYU class called “The Feminist Journalist,” the school’s decision was criticized on Fox News. Now, according to a new report, students who took the class have filed a complaint with the university, saying that among other things, Duca disappeared from the classroom often, targeted one student to the point of making them cry, and spoke too much about her personal life.

According to a Tuesday piece from Buzzfeed that largely outlines Duca’s new book and profiles her, a complaint was filed by some of her students to NYU journalism school’s institute director, Ted Conover, and associate director, Meredith Broussard. A representative did not respond to a request for confirmation or comment. All ten students signed the complaint, according to Buzzfeed, and five of them spoke to Buzzfeed for the profile, choosing to remain anonymous out of fear of reprisal from Duca, largely known for her public sparring with Fox News’ Carlson, or her professional contacts.

“All of them had similar allegations against Duca and the class’s structure: that Duca didn’t follow her own syllabus, that she spoke often and inappropriately about her personal life, that she would belittle and yell at students, and, most pressingly, that she targeted one student in particular,” according to the piece.
