Student Resistance to Pathways Growing

As students become more aware of the nature of Pathways they are increasingly speaking out. Recently student leaders have been joining with faculty to oppose Pathways in governance settings. Students Senators at LaGuardia, BMCC, and Queens have all voted for moratoriums on the implementation of Pathways. Last week students at Baruch College, including the head of the CUNY University Student Senate (USS) spoke out in a new video about the ways Pathways will degrade their education, their degree, and their futures (see above). Here at Brooklyn, student leaders have started to ask tough questions about Pathways and student newspapers have produced articles critical of it.

We urge you to vote “no confidence” in Pathways in the coming weeks. Pathways is bad for faculty, bad for our students, and bad for higher education.
