RSVP FOR PSC’S HYBRID RALLY DURING THE CUNY BOARD MEETING
MONDAY, OCTOBER 25, 4:30 PM
Baruch Vertical Campus @ 55 Lexington Ave. (25th St.) & On Zoom
The PSC’s 18-month Strategic Action Plan to change the course of CUNY and win a great contract shifts gears Monday, 10/25 with a mass online and in-person rally calling on the Board of Trustees to approve the University Budget Request and the Governor and Mayor to put us on the path toward a New Deal for CUNY.
With a new governor in office, a new mayor in the wings, and rising support for the investments the PSC and the CUNY Rising Alliance have urged, the CUNY administration has finally requested a budget worthy of our mission, and it doesn’t hike tuition. An additional $416 million (NYS: $313M | NYC: $103M) is in the ambitious request, with funding for New Deal for CUNY priorities, including 1,075 new full-time faculty lines, opportunities for full-time conversion appointments for adjuncts, and additional full-time mental health counselors.
