Get on the Bus and Rally Inside the NYS Capitol

PSC members will rally alongside UUP and NYSUT higher education members in the NYS Capitol on the Million Dollar Staircase on Thursday, March 9th at 12:00 noon. The Senate and Assembly one-house budget resolutions that set the table for the final state budget negotiations will be in formation as we rally. We need you there at this critical moment in the campaign for increased CUNY funding and the New Deal for CUNY.

This is a roundtrip to and from Albany on buses departing from the PSC office at 25 Broadway and from a location in Harlem at 7:00 AM and returning the same evening. Tell us you’ll be there! We’ll contact you about your bus location and other day-of logistics.

RSVP: March 9 Rally in Albany



Sign Up to Lobby in Albany with CUNY Students

The PSC is working in coalition with the CUNY University Student Senate, NYPIRG, NYSUT, UUP and the SUNY Student Assembly to organize a state-wide Student, Faculty Staff Higher Education Action Day in Albany on Tuesday, February 28. This is a chance to join CUNY students in lobby meetings with legislators and their staff. Together, we’ll be calling for dramatic increases in State investments in CUNY and SUNY, updated facilities, no tuition hikes, and better financial aid.

This is a roundtrip to Albany with CUNY students on buses departing at 6AM from various NYC locations. The buses will return to the city by 6PM. Lunch will be provided.  Sign up here to reserve your seat on a bus and tell the PSC that you plan to attend. We will follow up with your specific drop-off/pick-up site.



Send NYSUT’s New Deal for Higher Education Letter to Legislators

NYSUT, the PSC’s statewide union affiliate, has taken up our New Deal campaign, and generalized it to both CUNY and SUNY. They are calling for $4.7 billion in new investment for both university systems. This is another sign that our campaign has power and another opportunity to show Albany that there is broad support for fully funded public higher education. Please send the new Deal for Higher Education letter to legislators right now. And urge your friends, family, and colleagues to do the same!
