CUNY Funding Fight

On March 10th, students, faculty and staff from CUNY schools came together to fight for funding, contracts, and raises. They met in front of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s midtown Manhattan office, and marched down to the Community Church of New York on 35th street.

Earlier this year, the governor proposed a $485 million budget cut for CUNY senior colleges, even as CCNY and other colleges continue to operate in crisis mode, students face the real possibility of another tuition hike and professors have been without a union contract — or raises — since 2010.
