Tuesday and Wenesday Events

The CUNY Board of Trustees meetings I believe are monthly. Anyone that did not can speak can for another meeting, by e-mailing  the Office of the Secretary, at and list full name, college, student organization if any, title, and the subject by a deadline.

If they don’t want to speak they can send in a letter a few days before and a day after the meeting. All year any one can write the CUNY Vice Chancellor but he probably just forwards it back to the college verse the Board.  I was told CUNY has taken the Chancellor’s name off all mailings, posters, as if he is disgraced.  We will have a lot of coverage on the BC meeting posted soon.
