January 26, 2015 | Board of Trustees Meetings & Public Hearings
In his January report to the Board of Trustees, Chancellor James B. Milliken remarked on President Barack Obama’s recognition of CUNY’s Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) as part of Obama’s focus on community college accessibility. “The President cited ASAP as a model program for moving students quickly and successfully to graduation, a program that other community colleges across the country should emulate,” the Chancellor said. He expressed confidence that CUNY will show “steady improvement thanks in part to the mayor’s investment in ASAP and in STEM programs.” He also summarized the governor’s executive budget, which includes increased state funding for CUNY.
