HOSTOS CLIP (CUNY Language Immersion Program) confronts drastic budget cuts, depriving many immigrant students a shot at a college education and robbing instructors of their jobs.
Join PSC members this Wednesday, July 31st at 4:00 p.m. at HCC for a rally that calls on HCC President Gomez to step in and provide funding for the Program. Meet in front of the C & B Buildings, near the pedestrian ramp.
CLIP has provided a pathway to professional achievement for thousands of students from our city’s immigrant communities, by providing low-cost immersion English instruction and college preparation. Students spend 25-hours a week improving their English to prepare them to succeed in credit-bearing college classes at Hostos. Students can take classes in the Summer, Fall, and Spring with day or evening five-hour classes held Monday through Friday.
These budget cuts are CUNY-wide, but at other campuses college presidents have stepped in to restore funding. We need your help to convince President Gomez to do the same!
