Free CUNY Demands Tuition Refund, Free Resources for Students

HUNTER COLLEGE–Professors and adjuncts restructured their curriculum. Essential workers reported to campus. And students grappled with distance-learning while completing assignments. While the effects of the coronavirus outbreak unfolded throughout the college community, Free CUNY drafted a list of demands.

Its petition, released on the first day of online classes, calls for emergency funding, free food, healthcare, housing and childcare for students, staff and faculty.
