June 28, 2011 | Board of Trustees Meetings & Public Hearings, The Chancellor's Report
Reporting to the Board of Trustees, Chancellor Goldstein congratulated Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state legislators for the passage of an historic new funding mechanism to provide some financial stability for public higher education. The new state law, which calls for small tuition increases while ensuring continued financial aid protections for students in need, is based on the proposals of the CUNY Compact developed by the Chancellor nearly a decade ago. In response to the new appropriations language from the State, the Chancellor requested that the executive committee of the Board meet in the coming weeks. Chancellor Goldstein also reviewed New York City funding policies and the impact on community colleges and efforts to increase private fund-raising.
