CUNY Board of Trustees Hearing--Nov. 24
Come show support for union members and officers who plan to testify about the CUNY Budget and its relation to PSC contract demands at a public hearing of the CUNY Board of Trustees on Monday, November 24 at 5:00 PM in Room 14-220 of the Baruch Vertical Campus (55 Lexington Ave.). Email PSC Organizing Director Deirdre Brill at email@example.com to let us know you’ll be there to show solidarity—or if you want to testify at the hearing.
A draft of the University Budget Request for FY 2015-2016 to be discussed at the Board hearing on Nov. 24 is posted here. In it CUNY requests a $135.7 million increase in total funding for senior colleges and a $68.5 million increase for community colleges. More than half of the new funding would come from tuition hikes; 29% would come in the form of new State Aid and 7% would be new City Support. Investments in new full-time faculty, online education, academic advising, and the Advanced Science Research Center are proposed in the budget request, along with extra funding for programs that promote student success. The PSC’s testimony will comment the budget request.
