Board of Trustees
The City University of New York

Dear Members of the CUNY Board of Trustees,

I write to you as the faculty member on the CUNY Board Committee on Academic Policy, Program and Research (CAPPR). Two weeks ago, on April 2, during the most recent CAPPR meeting and during informal discussions afterward with several of the Committee’s members, I came to the realization that not all the Trustees may know about the many votes of opposition to Pathways that have taken place across CUNY during the past three and a half months since January 2012, none solicited by the University Faculty Senate. Copies of these statements and other relevant statements are enclosed for your information.

During and after that same meeting I also came to the realization that not all the Trustees may know about a petition in opposition to Pathways which more than 4,700 non-student members of the CUNY community have signed onto; this petition was emailed to each of us at our CUNY email address, from which those who signed onto the petition did so. You will find my name among the signatories. The url of the petition is

Please do let me know if you would like to discuss this or if you have questions. In addition to being the CAPPR faculty member, I am also the President of the Faculty Senate of John Jay College of Criminal Justice, one of the elected faculty bodies that issued yet another statement in opposition to Pathways just two weeks ago and which is among the documents enclosed.

This is an announcement list maintained by the York College chapter of the Professional Staff Congress. The purpose of this list is to send announcements of importance to (1) PSC members and (2) all faculty members at York College. This list is moderated to ensure only announcements for PSC and faculty members are forwarded. All faculty members can submit announcements to be forwarded via the list. These announcements must be relevant to the entire York faculty (not specific departments).
