BMCC is Teaching CUNY!

Between now and the end of November, BMCC faculty will devote some class time to helping our students understand the policy and funding decisions that set the context for their educations. Interested in participating? Here's a sample lesson plan.

Head to and for more info.

In addition please attend, and invite your students to attend, a faculty-student teach-in on Wednesday, October 21 (2-4pm, N452) at which we’ll discuss the history of tuition and public funding for CUNY, the relevance to students of the PSC’s contract campaign, and some steps—including and beyond the postcard campaign—to work together for a better CUNY.

As always, stay in touch with our chapter activities and newsletter, The Gadfly, at:
