Rally for higher education funding at NY Capitol

NY Capitol News

Today faculty unions and student groups will rally at the state Capitol for higher education funding in New York. 

They’re urging Governor Cuomo to close what they say is a nearly $140 million shortfall in funding for SUNY and CUNY campuses. 

Governor Cuomo has included $7.6 billion for New York’s public university system in his budget proposal. 

The governor also wants to launch the third and final phase of the program that provides free tuition to SUNY and CUNY schools for middle-class families.
