College Leaders Call On State Legislature To Invest In SUNY
They want lawmakers to create a new investment fund and to extend NYSUNY 2020 -- including the rational tuition policy -- in the new state budget.
John Nader, Provost at SUNY Delhi, says a predictable tuition policy allows students and their families to plan for the cost of a college education.
SUNY 2020 is a competitive grant program that allows for capital investment.
Mohawk Valley Community College President Randall Van Wagoner says MVCC used that grant money two years ago to build a state-of-the art Fab Lab for prototyping and manufacturing.
SUNY's 64 campuses educate nearly 460,000 students and generate nearly $21 billion a year for New York State.
