PSC Calls to Keep Classes Open Amid Cuts

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–The CUNY faculty union, known as the Professional Staff Congress, is calling on the University to use the new $455 million in federal relief funds to keep classes filled and students enrolled.

   In late December, the federal Department of Education passed the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, allocating over $455 million to CUNY colleges. In a press release, the PSC demanded CUNY use the federal stimulus funds to help pay for students, and create a moratorium on Bursar holds due to student debt of less than $100.
