Monday, December 6th at 6-7pm: #CUNYSUNYUpliftUs: Addressing Basic Needs on New York’s College Campuses

Creating food pantries on college campuses is only one step to meeting New York students’ basic needs. Join our Young Advocates as they share additional solutions that New York colleges can implement to ensure students’ needs are met holistically. You’ll also get to hear from New York college students who are being most affected by these issues continuing to plague students today. 

Wednesday, December 8th at 6-7pm: #CUNYNoHoops: Equitable Pathways When Transferring Colleges

The transfer process can be daunting for thousands of New York college students. From the lack of academic advisors to the ambiguity around the transfer credit system, still the transfer process continues to disproportionately affect people of color and from low-income backgrounds. Join our Young Advocates as they propose recommendations for New York colleges to address the persistent barriers students face when transferring colleges and a chance to hear from these students directly on the issue.
