City Budget Testimony

March 18, 2024

PSC President James Davis spoke Monday, March 18 at the City Council’s preliminary budget hearing on higher education. In his testimony, Davis argued that CUNY enrollment has rebounded, but that we have a crisis of understaffing and student retention that is being exacerbated by the Mayor’s repeated budget cuts and the University administration’s failures of leadership. He called for $94 million to fund the restoration of the Mayor’s “Program to Eliminate the Gap” cuts to CUNY community colleges and $35.5 million to fund expansions of CUNY Reconnect and ASAP, and supported Speaker Adams’s expansion of the Fair Fares program, with a call to screen CUNY students to ensure they receive free MetroCards.
