STATEMENT FROM CHANCELLOR JAMES B. MILLIKEN ON GOVERNOR CUOMO’S FY 2019 EXECUTIVE BUDGET

“We applaud the important increased investment in CUNY’s operations, as well as the continued commitment to critical maintenance.  By raising the income-eligibility cap for the Excelsior Scholarship, and including legislation to launch the DREAM Act, Governor Cuomo’s budget affords hope and opportunity by moving us closer to a future in which quality higher education is accessible to all low- and middle-income New Yorkers at no cost.”
