President Bowen presented this letter calling on CUNY to become a "sanctuary university," as defined by the AAUP, to Chancellor Milliken in a meeting the morning of Friday, December 2. The letter was sent to Chairperson Thompson later that afternoon. The PSC officers strongly urged the Chancellor to make a public declaration of sanctuary and to do so as soon as possible. The CUNY administration has already indicated that it is committed to several of the positions urged by the PSC. The union is hopeful that CUNY will make a declaration. CUNY should be at the forefront of the sanctuary university movement.
