State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) faculty recently delivered a joint letter to members of the State Senate and Assembly outlining their support for increased state investment in the university systems and a renewal of NYSUNY 2020.
“New York State could be the national leader in public higher education if it upholds its commitment to its citizens by increasing the funding of SUNY’s 64 campuses and CUNY’s 24 campuses,” the letter states. “A failure to do so will place New York’s system of public higher education in jeopardy and erode the State’s promise to the citizens of the state.”
A renewal of NYSUNY 2020 also has the support of the SUNY Student Assembly, the official student governance organization representing SUNY students. SUNY SA leadership is elected by their peers across the state, and the organization’s president, Binghamton Student Thomas D. Mastro, serves as a SUNY Trustee.
“The representatives of our 64 campuses came together last year to overwhelmingly pass a resolution supporting the renewal of NYSUNY 2020. In a vote of 59-4-1, we said loud and clear that we want fairness, equity, and predictability when it comes to money we spend on our education,” said Mastro.
