Protect the Quality of a CUNY Education
It is critical that CUNY retain academic standards. That’s why the faculty oppose Pathways, CUNY’s new general education curriculum and transfer policy.
Pathways reduces the number of credits that colleges can require under “general education,” the classes all students must take to graduate. It has forced some CUNY colleges to eliminate foreign language requirements and has interfered with making lab sessions a routine part of introductory science instruction. The new plan was imposed by administrators despite opposition from faculty governance leaders, who are responsible for formulating curriculum policy.
