The CUNY Trustees will vote on the proposed University Budget request of the State and City during their Monday, October 25 meeting. PSC members are submitting testimony calling on them to join the campaign for a New Deal for CUNY and request the funding to hire more full-time faculty and more mental health counselors and academic advisors, to fully fund our raises and CUNY’s other mandatory costs, and to increase the pay of adjunct faculty.
The Board is not holding an in-person or live virtual hearing this month. But they are accepting written and video testimony (3 minutes or less). The deadline to submit the testimony to CUNY is 6:00 PM Thursday, October 14. Here is the meeting notice with a link to submit testimony directly to the Board.
The PSC will submit your video testimony on your behalf and share it online with PSC members if you submit it via the FlipGrid below before our internal deadline of Thursday, October 14 at 9AM.
