We need to make sure every New Yorker can get access to world-class higher education. In NYC, our students have access to the greatest urban university in the world. CUNY propels six times as many low-income students into the middle class and beyond as all eight Ivy League schools and we can make it even better.
Make CUNY free for all in-state students.
Increase funding to CUNY schools to address urgent issues of health and safety, accessibility, energy and maintenance of CUNY buildings.
Increase the number of mental health counselors to meet the recommended national standards.
Hire 5,000 additional full-time faculty to improve the ratio of full-time faculty to students and reduce class sizes.
