CUNY at the Council City Budget Advocacy Day
The annual CUNY at the Council advocacy day organized by PSC and CUNY student groups is scheduled for Wednesday, May 7. We need you there; sign up via this web form.
At CUNY at the Council PSC members and CUNY students will be advocating for more investment in CUNY and a larger vision for the University. Click here to read PSC's budget testimony about that vision.
City Council members know the mayor has made CUNY a pillar of his plan to reduce economic inequality in our city, but they do not know the daily struggles of CUNY faculty and staff—not the way you do. Joining CUNY students in face-to-face meetings with lawmakers is an experience not to be missed; it’s a chance to feel your own civic power and be inspired anew by students who are fighting for their University and their chance at a better life. Meetings will take place in the morning and early afternoon at the Council members’ offices at 250 Broadway. Contact Amanda Magalhaes (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
Getting a New Contract: A Letter to PSC Members
PSC is fighting for a 'fair and a progressive contract' that may be negotiated in the coming months. PSC President Barbara Bowen says now is the time to build a united and collective voice for the best possible contract.
VOTE NO CONFIDENCE IN CUNY BOARD OF TRUSTEES
For the first time in decades, the entire full-time faculty at Brooklyn College passed a resolution at a special college-wide meeting on April 8 to demand that the Brooklyn College and CUNY administrations respect the faculty’s historic role in designing courses, general education programs, and degree requirements. The resolution passed by a vote of 298 in favor, 9 against and 18 abstentions.
The resolution also states that the faculty have “no confidence” in the CUNY Board of Trustees to make curricular decisions.
