BC Administration Responds to Faculty Resolution.

Brooklyn College spokesperson Jason Carey told the Eagle on Wednesday,
“While the President of Brooklyn College must transmit recommendations
of the Faculty Council to the Chancellor, these proposals must be
lawful and in line with recent court proceedings that ruled in favor
of the CUNY Board of Trustees in initiating academic policy.”

He added that reviews of general education happen periodically at the
college, and have been encouraged by the Provost. “Our faculty plays a
key role in shaping the academic curriculum at Brooklyn College. When
reviewing and revising our general education requirements, however,
the College is obligated to be guided by the broad framework of the
Pathways initiative approved by the CUNY Board of Trustees."
