Chancellor’s Report to the Board of Trustees

In his March report to the Board of Trustees, Chancellor James B. Milliken remarked on ASAP’s national recognition, new support for STEM programs, and the need to remain competitive in retaining talented faculty and staff. Chancellor Milliken reiterated that his top priority remains the resolution of collective bargaining agreements to recognize the commitment of faculty and staff. The Chancellor said, “If CUNY is to attract and retain top talent, we need an agreement with appropriate salary and benefits.” Chancellor Milliken added that the University’s dedicated adjunct faculty deserves recognition and long overdue raises for providing “a critical component to our ability to offer a high-quality education to our students.” More »
