Interim Chancellor William P. Kelly reports on the Invest in CUNY campaign, which has raised $2.5 billion to date, including recent contributions from the McGraw family for a business journalism center at the Graduate School of Journalism and a $25 million gift from Toby and Leon Cooperman to support the library and scholars program at Hunter College. Preliminary enrollment data show 270,000 degree-credit students for Fall 2013, and 247,0000 continuing-education enrollments. A special Council of Presidents committee, chaired by President Ricardo Fernandez of Lehman College, will review the impact of the higher education plan proposed by President Obama.
