CUNY Encourages Letter Campaign Opposing Sequestration Cuts


The higher education community is aware that if no congressional action is taken by March 1, 2013, the sequestration budget cut process will take place. This will have a negative impact on CUNY in two ways. First, financial aid programs such as Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), and Federal Work Study (FWS) as well as opportunity programs such as TRIO and GEAR-UP will be cut at least 5.1 %. These programs are vital to low-income students trying to realize their dream of higher education. Second, research dollars received from the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation would be cut by 5.1 percent as well. Research funding is the critical pathway to the economic development of New York State. CUNY Chancellor Matthew Goldstein is working with public higher education system leaders throughout the nation to oppose sequestration cuts.
Please visit www.supportcuny.org, use the Opportunity Grant Letter, Research Letter or write your own, and e-mail U.S. senators and congress members from New York to oppose the proposed sequestration reductions. Our nation's economy and ability to thrive in global competition depends on a well-educated workforce. Opportunity grant programs are critical in providing access to college. Recipients repay the investment made in their education many times over through increased earnings and taxes over the course of their lifetime. Negotiations are taking place right now in Washington, D.C. so please communicate today. The next two weeks are critical.
