Candidates for mayor Bill de Blasio, Adolfo Carrión, John Liu, Christine Quinn and Bill Thompson will be joined by journalist Tom Robbins as moderator. As an audience member, you will have an opportunity to propose questions for the candidates.
Chances are that one of the people who participates in this forum will be the next mayor of New York City. For the first time in many years, CUNY will have a new chancellor; the newly elected mayor will have a significant role in filling the post. What positions do the candidates take on the future direction of CUNY? More centralization and Pathways? More restriction of academic freedom? MOOCs? Come and find out.
Come and hear, too, their positions on funding for and access to CUNY, and on retroactive raises for public workers—including ourselves. Space is limited; sign up now to attend.
One more reason—an important one—to be there on Tuesday evening is to show our strength. The new mayor will not forget it if there is a packed house and an audience with an intense commitment to public higher education.
Don’t miss this chance to be part of an important discussion about the future of CUNY and the future of New York City: Tuesday, April 23, 7:00-9:00 PM at 2180 Third Avenue, (119th Street).
