Chancellor Milliken’s Statement on New York City’s Preliminary Executive Budget

We commend Mayor de Blasio for his continued investment in student success at The City University of New York. In particular, the 2016 Preliminary Executive Budget includes significant support for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs at the associate degree level, funding for the CUNY Fatherhood Academy and CUNY Solar Energy projects. We also look forward to participating in the recent recruitment of qualified college students for the NYPD Cadet Corps Internship Program. Taken together, these initiatives will provide important opportunities for CUNY students and faculty to contribute to the enhancement of New York City as they pursue their careers and realize their aspirations.
