Push for New Deal Stirs CUNY Community

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–A piece of legislation advocating for changes in the CUNY system continues to make waves. The bill, New Deal for CUNY, calls for a tuition-free university where faculty and staff are no longer underpaid and more mental health and academic resources are available across campuses. Proponents are pushing for Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature to include the bill within the 2024 state budget, which is due April 1.

Here is how The Brooklyn College Vanguard covered the support and reactions surrounding the New Deal for CUNY on its campus:
