A message from the University Student Senate:
Higher Learning Advocates has pulled together this sign-on letter to urge Congress to prioritize specific proposals to support students who’ve been impacted. Specifically, we recommend:
- Allowing for direct emergency funds to cover basic needs;
- Allowing for flexibility with the Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Usage; and
- Ensuring no penalty to Satisfactory Academic Progress.
Here’s a link to a campaign to tell Members of Congress to support today’s students through college closures and restrictions. Please share widely with your networks, including students– the goal is to have as many people contacting Congress as possible to make sure this is included in the final package.
Please fill out the link above that calls on your federal representatives to include funding for CUNY and SUNY!
