Message from the President

header_smith


Colleagues,

We would like to express our appreciation to members of the State Legislature and, particularly, to the leadership of the State Assembly for recognizing that the Public Higher Education, Empowerment and Innovation Act greatly conflicted with the fundamental purpose of the State University as an institution of public higher education.

SUNY was established by the State of New York and financed by the people of New York for the singular purpose of providing a broad-based opportunity for New York's students to obtain an education of quality.

In putting aside the enactment of the Governor's proposal to permit SUNY to unilaterally raise tuition and enter into public/private partnerships, the Legislature has preserved access and affordability while protecting SUNY's core public mission.

We thank them for their thoughtful and wise decision regarding an issue of critical importance to all New Yorkers.

In Union...
Phil
