CUNY Board of Trustees Meeting

On December 16th the board of trustees will be voting on their budget request that will be submitted to the Governor. In the proposed request, we have seen the inclusion of yet another tuition hike at our senior colleges. However, this budget proposal also includes a  tuition hike at our community colleges where tuition has been frozen for 4 years, and an additional  health and wellness $60 per semester fee. Health education is important if not imperative to our college communities, and school safety. However, our state should be paying for health support services, and not our students.


On December 9th at Lehman College  the CUNY Board of Trustees had a hearing on a proposed budget that will go to the governor’s office.

Earlier in the Fall 2019 term, GSGA VP Zoe, attended the Climate Strike at Foley Square in Manhattan, NY. Zoe estimated that at least 60,000 people crowded the streets of Foley Square on September 20th. Students from all five boroughs and beyond came together to demand action be taken to address climate change.
