March 15th student/faculty trip to Albany to Stop CUNY and SUNY Budget Cuts!

As most of you know, Gov Cuomo is proposing a 10% cutting CUNY’s operating budget and a 5% tuition increase. In response a coalition of CUNY and SUNY student governments, NYPIRG, and the CUNY and SUNY faculty unions (PSC and UUP) are holding a joint rally and lobby day in Albany on March 15th.

This will be a one day trip leaving around 6 AM and returning around 6 PM. Busses will be leaving form each borough and food and transportation will be provided for free.

A number of faculty have arranged to bring their classes along and others students need permission to miss classes to attend the event. The local chapter of the PSC would like to encourage you to:
