February 24, 2009 | Chancellor Goldstein Reports
Chancellor Matthew Goldstein discusses the University’s continuing efforts in Albany to secure a portion of state’s estimated $24 billion federal economic stimulus package redistribution. Washington also approved a boost in funding for federal Pell Grants, which is expected to support an additional six to seven thousand low-income students at CUNY. Spring enrollment has increased 4.5 percent from this time last year. The data show more students are studying full-time, an indicator closely associated with improved retention and graduation rates.
