Phased retirement at CUNY offers a way for full-time instructional staff members to move to retirement, and many have already made the transition. The program, originally agreed to between the PSC and CUNY as a pilot program, is now permanent. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2019.
The PSC is one of 33 organizations that comprise CUNY Rising, an alliance of students, workers and communities fighting for free and quality CUNY education. CUNY Rising has published on their website a letter demanding full funding for CUNY that alumni and friends of CUNY can send to legislators. Please click here to send the letter, and share the link with CUNY alumni.
For the past two decades, the average number of full-time faculty members per student at SUNY has increased while it has steadily decreased at CUNY, a new CUNY University Faculty Senate study shows. However, faculty-student ratios vary dramatically from one campus to another within each system.
