This Week in the PSC

This Week in the PSC (12.01.21): Sign the Petition! CUNY Safe Return Cannot Be One Size Fits All

Feb 03, 2022

#CUNYSafeReturn Cannot Be One Size Fits All

The PSC expects the University administration to provide clear, sensible, safe guidance for the Spring 2022 semester that is responsive to emerging information about new COVID variants. Add your name to this petition calling on the Chancellor to reject arbitrary one-size-fits-all standards that prevent the local exercise of academic judgment and undermine shared governance. Urge the administration to protect our health and the quality of a CUNY education by granting needed remote work requests; allowing academic departments to exercise independent judgment about the percentage of in-person classes; counting hybrid classes toward the in-person category; preserving in-person classes with low enrollments; and refraining from offering HyFlex courses absent an agreement with the union about their terms and conditions.
