A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY
THE IMAGINATION OF THE CITY

A City Council proclamation declared March 26th as CUNY Day.

This year, with public higher education in NY State under massive attack, CUNY Day took on added importance.

Events, sponsored by the PSC, student and campus groups, were held at most CUNY colleges.  Campus activities focused on mobilizations against budget cuts and tuition hikes and for tax equity.

The materials developed for CUNY Day remain relevant as faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters of CUNY continue organizing for quality and affordable public higher education.
